Sorry if this is a dead thread, but just found it after years of using the Weebly site.
Great and informative work, Joe!
I have a little gem for you, Hope it gives you a tickle!
Its an M, but as you see the stock is very different in several ways from the standard Monte Carlo
style which the "M" was most noted for.
The high comb and double cheek pad, thin wrist with an actual "knob", and the sculpted and very wide fore end and little bump-up to the front ferrule set it apart. Also the color, kind of a coffee brown,
Inside, the numbers match (1993 mfg), no-numbered TG, the gas tube has faint electro-pencilling,
and is a two-piece unit. The op rod has a step-down at the tappet end, and the tube has a smaller opening than standard.
The internal wood work is rougher than usual, as if the stock was a one-off and done partially by hand. It has a lot of the standard inletting mill marks, also.
Whatcha think? Interesting?
