Wondering what an M14E2 stock is worth. It is painted black, and has no buttplate. Looks to be in very good condition. TIA

I dont know where they found them, but their were a bunch at the last creek show,,, like examples on at least half a dozen different tables. Most were incomplete and relatively cheap, though some thought even incomplete ones were gold and the single complete example I saw was still priced big bucks. I cant even guess what a black painted, incomplete one might fetch...Finding the correct parts to complete them has been like finding unobtainium since at least the early 80's.

OK, so I have a complete walnut M14E2 stock with all GI hardware - it's all there. What would that be worth? Then, how much does an as-new GI M2 Bipod and GI muzzle brake add to the value - oh, and an M14E2 sling?

Well, if it's truly 'complete',,,which includes the 'unobtainium' rubber butt pad with the correct plugs that match and fill in the holes for the butt plate screws, the single example I saw at the creek last year was priced at $1450. IIRC

That was asking price mind you, I didn't see it sell.

Last I was aware, new slings were still available for like $25.
Not sure about the bipod or brake, I havent really payed attention to those in years.

Yup, lots of those stocks turned up again (as I allued to earlier) all stripped and lacking the proper parts....Of which, that chinese butt pad isent one.
You need, Fold down front grip/sling swivel and install hardware, flip-up butt plate, rubber butt pad, pad filler plugs, rear swivel, screws,,,
Again, parts that have become mostly 'unobtainium' today.

Cheers, YV

I ordered and bought my m1a back in 1980 and ordered it with the E-2 wood pistol grip stock. I still have it. I couldn't get as good as a cheek weld so I bought a surplus m14 stock and put it on. Still have the stock.
Someone back t hen told me the stock was worth $300 and that was back around 1985 or so.
I paid a little over 600 for the rifle and stock.
Mine did NOT come with a rubber butt pad though. it is steel I think.
I'd have to dig it out and look at it.

I got a Devine M1A years ago that had a E2 stock on it that appeared to have been walnut. I thought this odd being this rather than beech. I remember also having a Realist auto ranging scope with it.

It should have a flip up metal butt plate with the rubber pad under it.
There were original walnut e2's made, they bring even more $$ but were said not to hold up to use.
Originality is the big thing, their are or were repro's of everything from stocks to all the hardware made in years past...Like back in 70's-80's.
I wouldent spend $$ on one without the opinion of somebody that really knows all the details to check and look for and can back it up,,,,A category which I know just enough, to rule myself out of.
