Wil someone describe the Aussie buttplate, material & is it stamped? I am making my own walnut stock & would like something better than the crude,stamped plate in my G1 kit. Saw a nice one on a rifle (Doubleought's) that was Aussie & looked like an aluminum casting. I also have a nice checkered steel Mod.70 I can use.

It is cast, not stamped from some non-ferrous alloy. Somebody mentioned zinc; either that or aluminum.

They are really nice and look great- I have one on an Ironwood metric stock. They are narrower than the metrics, especially at the bottom so you'll want to get one before you finish your stock.

Good luck with it.

I got a brand new one from http://www.entreprise.com/ (Entreprise Arms)

It came with the Sling Mount & screws
