How about some cases???? @buffalowinter and I are still waiting patiently, my friend. Very patiently....You guys are ridiculous, lol. All PM'S, emails and text messages have been responded to. None of these stocks are for sale, they're all in my personal collection. You've all been sharing your stocks, so I figured you guys might like to see the stuff I kept. Sorry about any confusion regarding the pics I posted.
A member here bought my last painted stock a few weeks back, it was listed in the classifieds section. Even though I don't have any painted stocks available, I still have some grey and tan stocks for sale. I'm planning on listing a few of these stocks online, but please shoot me a PM if you're interested in one.
I really appreciate the support you guys have given me over the past year and I love seeing these stocks being used on your builds! Please keep the pics and info flowing, this has been an awesome thread to follow!
I just gave an update in the Kalispel case thread, unfortunately there aren't any cases for sale. If anything does change in the future, you and @buffalowinter are at the top of list.
You definitely should be proud of that one, it's a great stock and a beautiful build! I'm jealous, I don't even have a Mod 0 built yet!USMCGT0331 How many stocks were turned in and are out in the wild?
I am proud to own one.. and it will remain in my collection forever.
Holy shit! I can't believe you found that pic and that the stock matches up! Thank you very much for sharing that with us! I just did a search for SEALs at Tal Afar and found some great info. The provenance of this stock is astonishing and unquestionable, it was there in Tal Afar during an extremely important event in Iraq's modern history! Please take the time to read the link below, it's a pretty amazing story!
It truly is an amazing piece of history and it's easily the most historical/desirable Mod 0 stock in private hands! It's in my collection and it will remain here for a very long time. If you look closely at the picture with the sniper, you can see that the stock originally had a Kick-EEZ shotgun pad on it.Unreal.... that stock is beyond cool!!!
Who has it now?
That is some incredible research and an ironclad provenance on a real piece of military history! Well done!
So I can't post the name or the unit here... but I am sending a PM to 0331... I have the name of the Seal who carried that rifle and was in the picture. From one of his team-mates who is a friend. Sending the info in a PM now and 0331... you are free to contact him via e-mail and get the story.That photo @spooledup posted is from the book "SEALs: The US Navy's Elite Fighting Force" <--- unaffiliated hot link, but buy this book, it's awesome!
Check out this photo:
Kinda hard to see, but I think this also might be a pic of the stock
We called it 100 mph tape...from the early '80's. "hunderd mile an hour tape"Tape is plain old Army green 100 MPH tape. The same stuff the air force uses, but they call it 1000 mile per hour tape. NASA uses it, too. They call it 17,500 Mile per hour tape.... It looks lighter on the photos than in real life.
The yellow on the end is safety yellow spray paint and paint pen in red.We called it 100 mph tape...from the early '80's. "hunderd mile an hour tape"
The yellow shit on the end looks like carpet tape (double sided adhesive tape) with the backing left on one side?
He is and you are in good hands!I sent Alan my stuff in Oct of '17. I haven't heard a thing from him and I have called and FB messaged him several times. He is still breathing correct?
Looking forward to seeing it. Assuming you are allowed suppressors, can you contract a "clone" from one of your local companies? Would likely be lighter, and have one of their stacks but I'm sure they could make it look/hook up the same. Not sure it would be 100% worth it, but if you're ready sporting an Ardvark dick......I just sent my Remington 700 Police along with my MARS rail and other bits and pieces to the smith, where I have a custom Jury barrel with mk13mod5 barrel profile wating for me. Good times a head.
Im guessing it will be a few months before its done, but thats ok. It wont be a full on clone build as I cant get a KAC suppressor, and my AICS AT chassis has the newer stock sides. But it will be as close as I can get it, for a resonable amount of money here in Sweden.
I do have suppressors but getting a copy of the KAC suppressor made sounds crazy expensive and complicated. My barrel has the standard mk13mod5 profile, not the aardvark dick style. The suppressors I have are direct thread and one of them is pretty similar to the slimmer profile of the KAC can. It's the one I have used on the rifle prior to the rebuild.Looking forward to seeing it. Assuming you are allowed suppressors, can you contract a "clone" from one of your local companies?
