    Wisconsin Barn wood

    Some of the early SA SPG large over small hole stocks that I got from the barn wood cache had the rear section modified for the trapdoor butt plate, most had the second proof stamp but none had a rebuld stamp/cartouche. Now some collectors have had these stocks altered back to the original no trap configuration for gas trap restorations. I did not not alter any of mine as I wanted them in their modified condition, as they make excellent "direct conversion" rifle stocks.

          The later buttplates show a space at the bottom because the original no-trap buttplates had a small curve there. A no- trap buttplate will fit without the gap. Using an SPG stock on a shooter is not advisable. They are going from $1200 to $4,000
