Hey guys I am currently in the process of purchasing a nice long side rail with mismatched stock, it has the checkered buttplate that if authentic adds to the value of the rifle even with the mismatched wood. Opinions please on this buttplate, as the seller and I want to be fair with each other. Thank you!

When I first saw it I wasn't a big fan of it,but it looks real to me. Here are some closeup shots of the screw hole areas on mine- note how the checker pattern doesn't go down the hole, and note how at the edge some blocks are missing. There are 3 types of repros that I know of and it isn't one of those- unless someone has been working on doing repros that is.
