1. Hey All! Lately there has been more and more scammers on the forum board. They register and replies to members requests for guns and/or parts or other things. The reply contains a gmail or hotmail address or similar ”anonymous” email addresses which they want you to reply to. DO NOT ANSWER ANY STRANGE MESSAGES! They often state something like this: ”Hello! Saw your post about purchasing a stock for a Safari. KnuckleheadBob has one. Email him at: [email protected]” If you receive any strange messages: Check the status of whoever message you. If they have no posts and signed up the same day or very recently, stay away. Same goes for other members they might refer to. Check them too and if they are long standing members, PM them and ask if the message is legit. Most likely it’s not. Then use the report function in each message or post so I can kick them out! Beware of anything that might seem fishy! And again, for all of you who registered your personal name as username, please contact me so I can change it to a more anonymous username. You’d be surprised of how much one can find out about a person from just a username on a forum such ad our! All the best! And be safe! Jim

    That's a good recommendation, misako50. I can imagine some challenges in installing one of those Bakelite (or plastic) butt plates. If it were under-size, I guess you'd have to sand down the stock wood ahead of it if aesthetics were of any concern. It would be better if it were over-size, and you'd only have to grind it down to be flush with the stock wood--as when installing a recoil pad.

    I don’t want to get that carried away. I love the rifle even with a butt pad on it. It makes the LOP a little long for me though

    Actually the few that I have purchased on Ebay from them fit well with only one needing a bit of
    fitment. The key is getting the correct vintage that matches your rifle.
