    If you really need the recoil rod - I have several that are take offs from surplus wood sets I have purchased (I bought these for 94's and 93's).

    Let me know and I can ship you one.

    ETA: it would be the whole 2 pin backplate assembly minus wood stock and buffer.

    I do know for a fact, that there were NEW stocks out there, because I had one. It was NOT refinished, and it was never fully assembled, and certainly was never on a rifle. I bought it on Ebay from some dude that had it for some time and never used it. I have no idea where it originated from, or how many more might be out there. I have no idea exactly how old it might have been, but it was in absolute brand new condition. The ferrules had never been installed for the end plate, or butt pad. I didn't get any other hardware with it. I had to buy the ferrules, end cap, butt pad etc, to go with it, and I ended up selling it, and, who knows, it could have ended up anywhere after that. The buyer was from North Carolina.

    There may well be unissued stocks out there, sure.

    That is a German military stock, and it does look like it's never had a recoil assembly on the front. The lack of thread inserts doesn't mean much, they thread out as easily as they thread in. Those inserts are intended to cut their own threads, basically get installed once and never removed, so if the holes were threaded it had inserts once. The manufacturer might have pre-threaded the holes, as I do, but that would require an extra step that production shops generally wouldn't do.

    No one is making production wood stocks, no one has made production wood stocks since the original 1960's German/Italian ones. There are a few guys out there who make custom stocks, as I do. None of us hollow the stock out like you see on a German stock like yours. I could never figure out why they bothered spec'ing that on the originals - that was an engineer who never held a piece of wood!

    Eastern NM? Where abouts? I split my time between Cloudcroft and Corona.

    It was quite apparent by the pores and grain of the wood that the ferrules had never been installed. The light stain also made it clear that no end cap had ever been pushed on. NOS items pop up here and there. Kinda miraculous, but it happens. Where there was one, there could have been a crate of them.
    What I did find was an ad at HK Specialists listing a NEW PRODUCTION Wood A3 stock by MKE. But no other info like how many, or even when they were made. But it does specify NEW PRODUCTION.

    Since HK Specialist was started in 2009, it would appear that MKE made these after that, or at least possibly around that time. It could also be considered, that since HK Specialist, and PTR are both located in South Carolina, that PTR could have ended up with some of these stocks from them. Be it a swap or whatever.

    I can vouch that it was shipped within 100 miles of Aynor SC. It was certainly so pristine, that I wasn't about to install it on my field piece. I have done loads of stocks myself, including mods. Working with wood for 50+ years, you can tell when it's been handled much.
    I'm in remote central ranchland area. 40 miles west of Texas. We have to drive to Amarillo for Burger King.

    They had that listing up for years, always with 0 in stock. Its possible MKE got the machinery to do it, but since I've never heard of anyone getting one of these, I kinda doubt it. If that author was right about the wood parts being Italian subcontract work, I would tend to doubt MKE made their own even more.

    Wouldn't surprise me at all if the one you had was unissued, there's always a little brand new looking surplus stuff with any flood of parts from warehouses. It would surprise me a lot if any of it were truly new production. No one's ever heard of it, and at the time PTR was selling rifles with wood, everyone said that was the cause of the surplus stocks drying up in the blink of an eye. Hell, at $20 a pop, retail, who could blame them for buying it up and offering the option?

    Are there trees in Turkey? I know there are of course, I just find it hard to believe that MKE manufactured wood butt stocks. I wonder if Gordon can enlighten us as to the backstory regarding these stocks.

    Turkish walnut is awesome and must be relatively inexpensive, take a look at a CZ stock which are all really nice wood.
