    Yeah, I tried every which way to get a good angle, but the camera couldnít capture it.

    The Chanel is blank, went over it a few times for any markings. Anything I should be looking for?

    I appreciate the input guys, your knowledge is awesome. I figured for the price it would do until I found an MO.

    For some reason a barreled action in my safe drives me nuts until itís complete.

    A lot of postwar blanks have channel markings, most likely in process wood. No chatter is a main trait of postwar stocks, you can kinda tell that even though this stock is sanded it's lightly sanded and that isn't enough to remove the chatter.

    Ah thanks for the info Mike, so no help with that detail. I would agree too with it not being sanded super hard. Which, (to the OP) is why that proud TG isnít that dramatic, a wartime stock looks nearly identical in that detail. I would imagine most if not all of the wartime tooling and machines remaind in place for quite some time, as the Russians didnít seem to care about returning property stolen by the Germans.

    I really appreciate you guys, your knowledge is awesome! I feel a lot less excited, kind of bummed. But hey I learned something and it didnít cost me much in the long run.
