    Default Namibian Furniture - still desired stuff?

    Hey guys,

    I'm about to get some Namibian/ SWA furniture sets from Pretoria pretty soon. Would there be any interest in those kind of sets?

    Thanks,

    Absolutely dependent on cost. And also quality.

    Okay. What would that be? Won't be cheap, that's for sure. It takes a while to find them in South Africa!

    Guess we'll find out when you find them in south Africa. They are nice. Bought a set for 80 bucks at a gun show.

    People generally want them. Until they get them. Personally I don't see the draw. Had a set, it was very heavy and the stock was about two inches too long for comfort. There's a reason you rarely ever see a set on a gun someone actually uses.
    For some odd reason there's a demand so you'll sell them.

    I don't "run" my guns or "run" anything on them. Likewise, none of my guns are "platforms". I hold them up, not the other way around.

    There is a demand--- but the cost will be determinative on the level of demand!!!

    Does anyone have any photos of these in service? I have searched and never been able to find anything (S.A. Air Force) on Google or even Pinterest. I do remember coming across the manufacturer, which was a defense contractor in Pretoria but now has a different name. (Its been so long that I don't even remember the company name now! )

    I had a set for awhile. The wide handguards are sized oddly, fitment varies from set to set. If you add a bipod there is a chance it will be too tight on the ring of the Namibians and will need to be filed down.
    The stocks on those sets are also generally awful. Too long and heavy, and the buttpads on most sets I've handle seem to disintegrate at first touch.

    Personally, I moved around 4 or 5 sets of Namibian furniture I had shipped from South Africa. They are kind of like collapsible HK-G3 stocks... they look cool until you shoulder a rifle with one equipped. Probably desirable for some, but only until they take it to the range the first time.
