Yeah, the seller saw my post and asked if I was interested in his Mountain Carbine. He had already sold the Cavalry carbine.I hear ya. Carbine similar to yours--but with a correct stock--just sold for under $400 right here on the WTS/WTT. When you consider the cost/hassle of finding a proper stock, that LGS price would need to be pretty cheap to make the project worthwhile.
I agree re: the LGS price. To me, given the cost of a correct rifle, even assuming the LGS would deal, it's not worth the money I'd save on a non-matching carbine. I'd rather spend a little more for a matching one.
