I have 2 stocks from Richard's. The first I asssume was a return from another customer and the inletting around the trigger guard was overdone. I got it for $99 with the butt pad installed so I'm not complaining. The second stock is a factory second in exhibition grade walnut. Very, very nice! The only problem with it is the extra hole drilled in the bottom that the mag well will not cover. I'm still wondering why the hell they put it there but I'll find some way to cover it up. There is a small knot on the left side but this stock will look better than the wood on my Cooper LVT when it's finished. They aren't perfect but all you have to do if not satisfied is send it back. I don't think you can beat them for the $$$. Good luck!!
