I got the $35 one, exellant condition I think. for $35 plus shipping it cant be to much risk. As for painting it I havent decided yet. It mostly depends on how it looks without paint. I will be working the op rod like lammers did. You can never have too much accuracy.
In the pics of mine, the dark brown first pic of the whole group of rifles, that is what the stock will look like on arrival. That is also a $35 Freds Stock. Cleaning up the rod did smooth her out a lot, even on just cycling by hand. PM me if I can be of any help, I but i doubt you will need it.
