Looking for the lower wire stock portion for an M1A1 stock to replace my broken/repaired one. USGI only. I know the guy in France has them, but have concerns it won't be original.

I have ordered a bunch of smaller parts from nenel3 and they were all USGI. Just my experience, not to question your concern, I'm sure it has a basis. I gave some thought to trying to piece together an M1A1 stock from his parts, I did message him about it but didn't hear back.

I've bought a few things from him and all were as expected, but he lists those lower hinges without spanner notches as USGI. Thought those were not? So if they aren't, I'm assuming he wouldn't know USGI stock wire parts. But maybe I'm wrong about the lower hinge?

I've bought small items/oilers from him and all looked good.  Correspondence has been more misses than hits.  I made an assumption that he and collecter12345 in the Netherlands managed to buy up surplus left over from WWII and the occupation years.  Again, that is only an assumption.

I'd rather buy a part from someone here.

 I have also bought parts for the same guy. Most were M1A1 parts, but all were USGI. Unfortunately most of the M1A1 parts I had are gone...scooped up by a dealer at a show. Only thing left is a NIW pistol grip and a disassembled compete M1A1.

I’ll check my parts bin and see if I can scrounge up what you seek. I think I have one but it is only half GI.

Ok, thanks all.

Rather not hear about the guy in France anymore. I'm looking for something inside the USA from our community.
This is what I'm looking for and why. I'd buy the whole metal portion to get if need be.
