What can I expect to pay for a mint G3/91 wood stock set?

Buttstock and forearm- a very nice set, not a well used surplus set.

I have a couple sets at home that I paid around this for, will have a look & see how nice they are, there has been a few pop up here that was very nice too, but I think finding a "mint" set would be like hitting the lottery, maybe find a very nice set & send to Yellowhand to refinish?

Jpa- if you find a nice one, drop me a PM if you have any interest in selling.

This holds true for nice used sets. For a mint set I can see better than that.

I've got three or four sets,,,wood butts and wood hand guards out in the shop.


Just not had any time to work them up and sell here.

Might be time.

As with so many other milsurp items, I wish I'd had the fore-sight to buy more and stash away.

Most of this old surplus wood can be brought back to near nos condition with some time,,attention,, and effort.

Finding mint/new,,never mounted surplus wood,,,which is 50/60 years old,,stored properly,,,is rare.

I'll keep an eye out for the op...............
