    I have a friend that is in need of an original stock for a Model88 Winchester lever gun.

    He purchased the gun in pristine condition, and the stock was broken in transit under the care of FedEX. The stock is broken completely in two at the wrist.

    It is a pre-64 model, and he really doesn't want to put a re-pro on it.

    If anyone knows of one available I'd appreciate it.

    Thanks in advance.

    Couple on GunBroker. Better sit down, $325.00 and 525.00. Hope FedEx is paying for damages.

    He hopes they will. He can't initiate it though, the shipper (Cabelas) has to. This is for an otherwise pristine pre-64, and takes the "cloverleaf" type, so I am sure SOMEBODY will step up!!

    He is in Alaska, and says his FFL has seen this MANY times with FedEX and guns.

    Thanks for the replies guys.
    Keep them coming!
    Especially if you know someone with an original.

    Please explain "cloverleaf type". Are you talking about an oak leaf design embossed on the stock?

    The difference is the shape of the relief in the tang area.
    here is a pic:

    The older style is the cloverleaf type, and is the one on top in the photo.

    Thanks for the help guys.

    I sent you a PM.
    Thanks for the help.
    You might also ask him if he'll sell the whole gun, and what price he has in mind.
