I never liked the schnabel on the Ruger #1a, so I redesigned the forend and stock. Yes, they are the original wood, but I resculpted the shape of both, but I kept the original style Len Brownell designed for Ruger. I think the photos are self explanitory. Wood is oil finished, many coats. Funny thing is, it seems to shoot better now too. I can usually keep it under an inch now at 100yds. This rifle has taken some nice deer for me. I'll miss it, but I don't use it now, and it justs sits in my safe. All of the metal is original and condition is very good. The scope is not included. All shipping is paid by the buyer, both original and return. No trades please! I need a signed copy of an FFL to ship to that dealer only!
