I see one on gunbroker and the checkering doesn't look factory. I have never seen one that looked factory. A person could swap a 591 stock for a 541S or T stock though.

Remington never cataloged the 591 or 592 with checkering, so unless the seller can provide solid provenance that the checkering was done by Remington, I wouldn't believe it is what the seller claims it is.

Not factory........unless the seller can document it came from the custom shop, which I doubt.

It's been brought to my attention remimgton custom shop did some of them. I was sent pics of one that was said to be from the custom shop. It had the standard 1970's skip line checkering. Looked real nice in high gloss.
