FN wood butt pricing

Can I get some current pricing for stripped wood? Need to get rid of some wood to buy new wood.

1. BGS type a butt, no cracks, typical dents and dings as received back in the day. Never sanded or refinished. Cut for rotating swivel.

2. G1 trapdoor kit. Both appear FN versus Turk. No cracks, but one has more dings than the other. Possibly refinished and looks like some wrist crack repairs--repairs hidden with ferrule installed. Cut for rotating swivel.

3. Argie wood butt. thick wrist. Weird shellac-ish finish. Typical longitudinal crack at wrist, but should be easily repaired.

Check with Flypaper.

Price depends on wood type, grain etc....IWD has decent product, but Flypaper is the bomb when it comes to some fancy wood/grain, especially if you are looking for Tiger Stripe.

He will occasionally have some on GB.

I have an old Argy stock but it has the thin wrist area, with usual crack which I managed to repair.

As I said before, contact Flypaper on here, he may have something laying around (?).

He's not looking to buy, he's looking for market value so he can sell.
