    Ok humour me with this question... Is that really wood? It's so pretty it looks like one of those laminates they put over wood! Who built the stock? Jeff

    The finish looks like Turkish Walnut Blonde ...a finish discontinued by Sport Coat Finish Co...

    If it is their paint job it is actually a decal transfer job finished off with a automotive lacquer job.

    the stock and forearm look fantastic. years ago a guy came into the gun club with a blue velvet case with a beautiful $2,000 perazzi stock. this was the time when stocks were going for about $300-$500.00. it was a cold sunday morning, everyone was admiring the stock, it did look beautiful. then this old time shooter looks at it, he's half deaf and talks very loud. he says" back in 1939 i had a wheel barrel, it's handle had better wood". the owner of the stock almost died, everyone started laughing. the gun in the picture looks great. wish i owned it. good luck selling it. i am sure it is worth the price.

    Might have better luck selling it if he responded to several questions about the gun. Just a thought. Jeff

    The poet Joyce Kilmer wrote:" ..only God can make a tree." - but I don't think He ever made one that looked like that!

    So... The beautiful wood is a sticker.... That makes this gun worth about 1600 at best. Good luck to your friend. Jeff

    The adjustable rib is a big plus, but it's probably a mobil choke barrel which takes off the value. An extra release trigger should add $ 150-$ 200.
    Lynn Gipson had a gun like this for $ 1,395 which apparently he sold after a long time. With the nice coating I think this gun's got to be worth another $ 100- $ 150. So take $ 1,400 + $ 150 + $ 200 = $ 1,750 high end. take 20% off for private sale and you're at Calvin MD's price $ 1,400.
