Another wonderful find.  Bought in '05, and just opened today!  I wonder when he stopped making these, probably in the early 2000's.  This definitely looks like a JM piece.  Do not know who did the checkering, but I'm very glad it's four panel.  Not a scratch or ding in it - incredible.

Dear Sonnysan,

I apologize, but I can't offer you any information about the stock of which you posted a photo.  I can say that it truly very-pleasing to the eye, and one that I'd be happy to find hidden in a corner somewhere in my treasure trove.  However...

I've been watching your posts for awhile now, and I think I've noticed a trend.  You seem to have more unused, buried goodies suitable for drooling-over than most of us probably have in our entire (working) collection, especially as they relate to spring piston air guns.  Sometimes it's scopes, or pellet stashes, or stocks, or even complete collector's edition air guns.  It's getting to be more than I can take.

So, maybe you could start the title of your posts with something similar to, "Drool Alert...".  Then, I for one wouldn't have to feel so impoverished about said items, and we wouldn't be so blindsided.  Of course, I could just ignore any posts that have your name on them, but it's a personal shortcoming.  Admittedly, I once coveted a neighbor's beagle because it was such an incredibly-good hunting dog.

BTW, I did once buy a used, Japanese-made Hakko-'Marksman' scope from you at a good price, and it was everything you said it was in the ad.  I used it with great success for several years until it finally went belly-up.  And, to be honest, I think I dropped it on the floor.  In any case, with ABO out of business at that point, I was forced to toss it.  Not your fault at all, so no complaints there.

Respectfully.  😉

Safe and Happy Shooting!

Very nice.  Great Pattern.  I have a R1 and a R9 with the same stock pattern from ARH.  I plan to add a vertical thumbrest to make it even better to hold.

Getting serious now, some thumb hole stocks make me a little nervous just to look at them, because a smallish thumb hole looks like the ideal trap to catch a thumb and sprain it, or worse.  But, the hole in this one looks pretty-generous, and I don't have the same reaction when I look at it.  It looks like it would not only be 'ergonomically-comfortable' for a shooter, but plenty safe to use.  Now, maybe no one has ever hurt their thumb while swinging around or trying to 'part ways' with a thumb hole stock, but it looks possible to me.

Safe and Happy Shooting!

I have to admit it is shocking to find such nice pieces that haven't been opened for so long.  Over the last weekend I found a few more goodies!  Will post them probably over the weekend.  As for this stock, I hope it's not an R9.  That means I'll have to buy an action.  Anyway, there are more guns that haven't ever been posted in my collection.  Will upload pics as they are unearthed.  Can't believe so much was purchased.

I have looked at your stock several times and I knew there was something that just looked a little off.  The wood is beautiful and the design is really sleek and streamlined.  But I would have thought that anyone who would have put that much work into a stock would have at least made it Left Handed.  THEN it would be a true piece of art.  After that being said,  I would still love to have it and I would make it work.  It is really a nice piece and one that anyone would be proud to own.  Oh well
