Second time around

Was on here years ago but due to a few back surgeries lost interest in rifle shooting since I couldn't get into positions, still very hard for most, prone hurts still but starting to enjoy my M1A again, along with my other 50 guns.
I bought a Springfield loaded with plastic stock 12 years ago, because they didn't have any walnut in stock, so slowly building this one with the rest of the NM parts.
Looking for a good heavy walnut or birch stock or if I can find a cheap used McMillan glass stock, want to get back into some match shooting.

Welcome back Daytona. Several members here have very nice refinished stocks from 'Fred's Stocks' for sale. Doug Carlton is one of them I think.

Ahoy, and welcome aboard. Never had the Daytona but DID have a 70 Superbird 440/auto. Alpine White and a B5 blue 69 Hemi Roadrunner. Great cars to bring the M1A's to the range.

Welcome from MN. Get ahold of forum member M1Army or Doug Carlton. Either one of them can help you find a beautifully refinished USGI stock.
