They were only used for three years, 1915, 1916 and 1917. They aren't really rare as say a maple stock but not as easy to find as a beech or walnut stock. Seems like they used quite a few elm stocks for the 1915-16 run of M96s. I've seen a 1916 M94 with one on GB. A good way to judge how rare they are would be that it took me about five months to find an elm handguard for the M96 in my post above. Beech or walnut are on Ebay and GB everyday. A maple or mahogany one I might spend a lifetime trying to find unlike NW Swede who finds them in scrap piles and the misc. handguard barrels at the gunshow. :confused:

Most of the elm stocks I've seen were really quite pretty.
