I picked up this stock on ePay because I thought it was a nice example of a high wood and it is in nice shape. The guy selling it thought it was a repop, however I was not sure. If it is a repop it is whatever though as it is still a beautiful stock and I could use it as a shooter, and I have a legit USGI one. What do you all think?

I am a novice owner and not able to answer your question. As you say the stock 'looks' very nice. Have you tried to see how it fits? At the very least it maybe an excellent shooter stock. Hopefully folks with more knowledge will jump in here with helpful comments.

That looks to be one of the reproductions that was hitting the shows a few years ago. Reports of tables with all the manufactures like new.
I would look at sellers old auctions, see if he sold any more.

Thanks for the info! It’s a bit disappointing it isn’t real but all things considered its still a beautiful stock that should make for a decent shooter stock. At the end of the day though it was me that took the risk and sometimes you win some and you lose some.
