Fajen NM Heavy Stock or Big Red?

I have a new LRB barreled action using a M25 rear lug receiver and a heavy Krieger Barrel. It has never had a stock and I cant afford a JAE at the present time.

So, at least temporarily, I was considering a USGI Birch Big Red or a NM USGI Fajen M14 Birch Heavy Stock. What are the differences and what might be best for my build? Thank you in advance

US GI big reds are not usually cut for the rear lug. Fajen stocks do come already cut. Check GB as there were 2 different sellers selling them and both sellers had quite a few. Also check with Mike at windy city sourcing, IIRC he acquired a huge amount of them.
Quick search on GB shows a few, least expensive is from Lou at LRB>http://www.gunbroker.com/item/628682978

Thanks from spicoli

Late contract Fajen stocks were made to the maximum dimension allowed under NRA and CMP rules. They are somewhat akin to holding a 2X4. Some competitors like them and some think they are too wide. Rear lugs tend to want to crack the stocks behind the lug so a beefy stock is required. The big red will work, but the Fajen was made for it.

Thanks from spicoli and Jgun
