M14 E2/A1 stock info
I bought a Polytech M14 in what looks to be an original E2/A1 wood stock, are these stocks worth money as a collector item, I would like to refinish the stock unless it could be sold to someone who likes the original look. Thanks for any info. The stock looks to be complete with all pieces.

The E2 stock is popular with collectors. If you list it in the PX it should sell fairly fast if not overpriced. You'll need close up pictures of the butt plate and front grip details. Reproduction parts are not worth as much as original GI parts. Note that we are not allowed to quote or estimate values on this forum.

Values on these stock rise and drop like the stock market. My pic is not in order of anything, just a pic. I was on a mission to hunt and gather and marry up original parts to stocks that either had repro or no hardware. I was successful for these 7 stocks... Having a few of these stocks myself, this is what I consider the order of value to be:
Unaltered (I'll splain down below) Original Walnut E2s with original hardware bring the most money. These do not have the metal liner in the barrel channel.
Altered Walnut E2/A1 (means it was an E2 that was inletted after the fact to accept the metal liner in the barrel channel) with original hardware will bring 2nd prize.
Walnut E2 or E2/A1with repro hardware.
Birch A1 will bring OK money if original hardware
Birch A1 with repro hardware,,, some folks will buy just to have an example or for real shooting and not worry about ruining original hardware.

[COLOR="black"]We bought two of the original walnut E2 stocks in the mid 1990's from a gentleman in Illinois.
Wordmonger001 believes them to be collector quality without any damage from storage/handling. One is on the 3rd M1A with a Nightforce scope mounted. Needs a proper bipod for the forend. No current pics to share at present.
Stan M. checked all the M1As for proper trigger pulls/weight in ~ 2008(?).
We left them "as from the factory".
Our National Match went to Camp Perry in the 90's with its original owner.
