Also of note is that the stock is a blade bayo stock that was hogged out to fit the spike. 

I'm thinking this one's a candidate for a complete restocking.  We'll see what the two halves look like after I get the nails pulled.  I'm worried there are going to be gouges of wood missing once I clean it up and it'll look like hell (well worse than your typical Sino-Banian trashy gun that is)  But at $250, I really can't complain.

Those are some serious cracks. Some doweling may be in order. The trench art is cool, so I'd be inclined to try and save it.

New stock, flip, pull the lever again.   ;)

I bet you can get enough out if it to buy a great one at full price.

Unfortunately, on the cracked stock guns they include a "no returns" clause.  Metal is all matching and I see no rust *anywhere*.  Aside from a very stubborn gas piston not wanting to come out of the gas tube (I haven't really tried to get it out yet, I'm not kidding when I say I've been swamped lately!) it looks to be in very serviceable shape. 

Some got much better examples:





And others I would consider on par or perhaps a bit worse:

RM thats what we are expecting right ? I mean if all the metal part numbers match then I think you got an added bonus. Understanding the stock don't match, They could have sent a pile of mixmatched parts on a cracked stock  nea1. Did you say its Albanian Stock ? Im knocking on wood chuckles1  i would be very satisfied with that piece in that condition if the numbers match. Even if they dont it makes decisions allot easier on what to do. IE place it in the front of the safe as a shooter or the back and a historical conversation piece. Happy for you Bro.Man I can smell that thing from here !  rofl2  Mine reaches my FFL thursday probably see it next Saturday. Excited to be able to utilize this scorching California heat to melt that thing clean in a plastic bag  thumb1   Nice going ! Like all the trench features on that bad boy !

Hey KK, thanks!  It is what I was expecting, I'm certainly not dissatisfied with it, just not the home run I dreamt of! :) All metal matching is definitely a plus though not as good as an all matching example would have been. The stock is not useable as-is, but I think I can get it pinned and back together given some time and TLC.  If worst comes to worst, I have a few replacement stocks lying around that I can certainly try out. If that still doesn't float my boat, I can always flip it and try for something else. In that case, I'm really not going to be out too all that much (maybe shipping) as bubba'd guns on gunbroker routinely fetch $350 these days.

Good luck on yours!  thumb1

I haven't cleaned the cosmo off, but I grabbed another pair on the lowest regular sale price (not cracked stock) - my first one (early sale price) came in all matching and pretty nice, so i rolled again at $50 less and came up with some non matching.

 Good condition, but one has a non matching receiver cover and the other has a bolt carrier, receiver cover that match each other and are different from the rest of the rifle, except the bolt, which is a third serial number. I'll verify headspace when I get around to cleanaing it up. Might be a project gun, might end up being a more or less accurate one, who knows. I may sell it off and improve my collection.

the one with the non matching dustcover ends up being a family beater/shooter, I expect.

it's always important to remember that prices go up, not down.

Hopfully my cracked stock 299 special will all match . Just like RM. that's what I'm rolling the dice on.. The way  I look at it is that if one part doesnt match it's the same if all  parts dont match. Just another shooter with decreased value.. regardless,  everything is going to be okay😛👍

Cracked stock from Classic.  Serial 101522452.  The receiver cover does not match but everything else is matching.

Got my 299.00 special from AIM. Nothing special. All metal matches and stock has no number. It will be used as a service gun that will protect the collectables at the rear of the safe. Don't see any cracks in the stock. Pretty cool trench art. Piece of history. Cant wait to clean it. Kidding..  :))chuckles1

Bluing doesn't look horrible DC!  Maybe a bit of wear on the gas tube, receiver rails, and bottom of the magazine, but not like it's a rusty heap!  If she shoots straight, I'd say you've done pretty well!

That bottom sling swivel on the stock though...I'd swap that out for the right side swivel first thing.  I'll look through my stash tonight and see if I have one for you.  If I remember correctly, I only have bottom swivels but it never hurts to check!
