Just wondering if you got the buttstock with it. IIRC it wasn't mentioned in the original WTS thread that went to shit. If so that's a cool addition even though it looks like someone let the dog chew on it at one time. Any interesting cartouches or markings on the stock that us T48 freaks might not have heard about before ?

Thanks for posting those pictures again! I hadn't saved them for some reason.

What happened to those parts? I remember the sale thread when everything fell apart, but lost track of it afterwards. Did anyone here get them?

Goodorbit finally got the T48 receiver as the original seller's best friend came in and rescued him and made the the sale as originally agreed to Goodorbit.

Awesome! All is well that ends well, I guess. Would have been nice for that result to have taken place with out all the drama.....

Yes it would have been nicer with out the drama, but it does add to the story.

The stock was included, and is pretty ratty, but appears to be original. I will have to look it over for anything interesting, but nothing struck me when it arrived, other than, "wow Larry's repro sling swivel is spot on"

I think that stock will look pretty good once you steam out the dents and clean up the oils.
