  • Gotta Luv the Pawn Shop

    I do my best to visit local gun shops when I travel. A couple of weeks ago it was a bust in Oak Ridge, just s terribly down market there and nothing in the single shop in town. Here in Huntsville it's a bit different with so many Gun & Pawn stores. I visited "Larrys" who has been in business for 40 years now and has to convenient locations. Nothing of note, but I thought I post some pictures anyways. My heart did flutter a bit when I noted a woodland camo stock on the shelf, alas, it was not to be. Sorry for the iPotato pics and the lighting on the glass in the cabinets was killing me.

              Love places like that.

              How much was he asking for the messed with "K" Smear?

              Hope you bought that one.

                $1200. He thinks the money is in the Vortex.

              Possible return stock.

              Id have McMillan refill the DBM and move ahead with an exceptional A1 clone.

              The Vortex would be in the WTS section at Snipers Hide.

              Likely someone on here has data on that build, probably has been posted somewhere before.

              Yeah serial doesn't really fit a known range, as far as I know, so it's not like someone was trying an authentic build.

              The stock is a gem in the rough because the DBM was cut.

              There are a finite, never to be more made, number of smears in the world.

                  Just posted a pic of the rail. Doesn't look special. Wonder if it came in the shop that way...

                Dang...I would have to see if he would sell without the Vortex if he thinks that's the money! That's a sweet looking stock! Lots of possibility

                  Maybe I should offer him $500 and buy him a Magpul for a replacement.

                      Okay rail is not lugged. How was the stock forend? Anything messed with up there?

                      Wonder if the metal inserts are in the stock or was this just a commercial stock from the Smear period?

                      Maybe metal was used in all stocks?

                      Deffinitely a cool stock for someone like me that accepts close enough.

                        They are not the correct swivels but perhaps Wichitas can be fit.

                        The USMC McMillans most often are seen with the brown Pachmayer basket weave pad but there were black pads on some of the returns. Look up some of Skunks posts, I'm pretty sure he has a black pad return. Perhaps it's in the "Just Because" thread.

                        If I walked in a million gun shops I doubt I'd walk in to one with a Smear on the rack. Not my luck.

                        That stock needs some work but it has value.

                        I'll look up the thread as I thought they only had the brown pads. Jeezs, you're getting me all giddy.

                        "Maybe metal was used in all stocks?"

                        No.

                      I'm guessing someone on here is Googling "Huntsville", "Larrys", "Pawn" and will be calling at business opening.

                        If they do, I will be putting paper cuts on their eyeballs. Anyways, they are closed for the night, and since there is more that one Larrys, they'll have to get the right one to call. By then I'll be there and have closed the deal. Then I'll head over the Mr. Big Guns to see what they have.
