The Salesman @ Cabelas in Rapid City said it was an Anton Stock. Had a very unique grip cap inlay with different wood and a very significant rollover. When did Anton pass away and what age would this gun be?
Thanks for the info. Based on the info in the above posts the gun I looked at is definatley stocked by Anton. It doesn't fit me but if anyone is interested it is available @ the Rapid City, SD Cabela's
I have memories of the line-ups in the 70's at Anton's booth (East End next to P-W ) at the Grand American/Vandalia,Ohio.Waiting to have a stock fitted. A young man on horse back could spot an Anton Stock on a shotgun. He must have made 100's for ll00,870s and m-12s.
I apologize for showing my age.
A year ago I got a call from a guy in Iowa who'd had taken over the Anton stocks that his friend had pruchased. His friend had purchased the inventory of Anton stocks.
The "friend" was serving some time for what I can't remember, but the guy wanted me to help him sell the stocks. I was involved with the company that made all of the wood Weatherby stocks here in Rapid City for Weatherby, so he thought I had a means to accomplish the selling.
The guy never got back to me, but he said he had a bunch of them.
Perhaps someone here on ts.com may know of this guy in Iowa.
