Hey guys I got a guy that wants to sell an E2 stock to me,stock has no metal he says under where the but plate would be has sykes markings and 5910438 .Doesnt have any DOD stamps.The stock is birch looks nice any info on this would be great,also what would be a good price to pick it up for.Thanks
I think it depends on what you want. If you want an all correct USGI stock then listen to the other guys. I bought an E2 stock and dropped my scout in it and I love it. I'm used to rifles with a pistol grip so it's much more natural to me so I have a lot more fun shooting it and its a nice looking stock. It just depends on what you're looking for.
the stocks themselves are nice, I've had several over the years and keep selling them off because for the price of a complete stock I can darned near buy a decent pistol,
I now have an E2 stock with no hardware on it and a repro buttpad with a short rail under the handguard and love it,
if you're not looking to go the whole GI route then it is worth what you're willing to pay, the hunt for the GI hardware would put you beyond a reasonable budget
I say at two hundred dollars and a repro buttpad for $20.00 and you;d have a very nice comfortable shooter
There is a member here who has an original folding front grip assembly,,cost is $300. I've not seen any original GI butt plate assemblies for sale in MANY MANY years.So I can't even try to estimate a cost for one.A repro rubber butt,2 plugs and hinge piece is available from a seller who advertises on CMP and Strumgewehr who I have done a lot of business with and he's really, really good to go,but you will still need a flapper.
Add that to the $200 for the stripped stock and you're way up there.
