Solddaboat, that looks like walnut to me under that shiny stuff. Are you referring to the area on the stock near the chamber? Looks like carry wear if that's the area you are referring to. Then maybe the shiny stuff put on over the worn stock?? Just my .02. I don't have one yet, seen a few for sale, whats a fair price??

21915B - Only a red peg, but there's a space for a green one - as far as wood type, I am honestly not sure. It's got grain much like walnut, but it's a light wood w/no dark streaks or highlights, the stock was stained blonde... doesn't look like it has been refinished but I wouldn't swear to it....

A fair price is what it is worth to you.

In good condition and with all accessories (correct sights, handstop and swivels) - $250 is the low end and north of $300 seems to be the norm.

Can you post some pictures? Please recheck the SN as there are no known letter suffix rifles. Is there a space for the green peg or a hole in the wood? Vic told me there were many of these rifles made with very light colored Walnut. Regards, Rick.

I'm relying on you guys, I really don't know much about this gun, bought it a couple years ago from a buddy. Barrel was chopped when I got it, but it shoots great. Could be a complete Franken-gun w/LSB barrel

Hello azmbl. I wonder what happened with the letter suffix? Perhaps another rifle was SN'd with this number and they had to add a letter to make it unique? Beautiful checkering by the way.....that cost a pretty penny. Looks like the barrel was shortened too. You can replace the green peg call Havlin's. I would say it has not been stained just very light colored Walnut....beautiful. Regards, Rick.

Hello MK111. Please post some pics of both if you can. 141101 is now the earliest SN reported! Regards, Rick.

I checked the serial # on the 141101 again and it is correct. The green peg is broken off but the leg is there in the stock.
I have dialup service but I will try to get my son post them for me.
The other rifle is sale pending to another RFC forum member here.

Pete's LSB

s/n 1391146, walnut stock with chatter marks from whatever cut the barrel channel in the forearm. Rifle came with no sights. Safety peg on right (see red the rifle is hot-go figure!) Curiously, it has a thin white spacer under the butt plate that doesn't look like it belongs. It also has the typical "WARNING..." stamped in the barrel.
I purchased it (with little "r's" help ) on Gunbroker last November.
I sold this rifle in the spring of 2014

red peg

my no s/n rifle was missing the red peg. my grandson had a model car kit with red parts I took a piece of the frame that holds the parts cut it to length heated with a match and pushed it into the hole in the stock, polished it with 400 grit paper and it looks great as new
