How hard is it to find an original stock, (pistol grip) with swirl type end on pistol griop vs. flat or rounded for an Model 39 ?
This is an "S" prefix 5 digit with a broken heal on the butt stock and butt plate.
Also the mag tube does not seem to be working properly.
Obviously some work needs to be done....But am I looking at $500.00 dollars worth of investment or $250.00.
I am negotiating the price...down from the Published Blue BooK price for a 60% gun.
If the outer mag tube is busted where the follower catches, then the tube is useless. You can buy a replacement 39A style, from Wisners or watch the auction sites, for an original, but expect to pay $150-$200. An original butt stock, with butt plate, is going to be expensive also and hard to find.......not impossible.
My .02.......Throw the BB out, pass on the rifle, and wait for a complete & working rifle.
