  • Fair price Smear Stock

    What would be a reasonable price to charge for a legit return smear in 90%. The key is no box, sling swivels or certificate? Correct butt pad and bedding.

    no cert is a butt kicker as there were lots of smears made that wernt returns.

    the last 2 sold on ebay for 3800 and 4800 with certs boxes bottom metal etc.

    if i was looking to sell with ZERO documentation its legit id start at 3500$ prob.

      Yeah but there were alot of certs faked and re printed and some are good copies, its always east to tell a real smear from a civy smear, I have 2 civy smears and have seen others and there are many characteristics that each have that the other doesnt. Its super easy to tell an original smear from non original, to me certs dont matter that much at all but are always nice to have.

        Certs are trash. There were 3 different versions and in the end even Mcmillan sent out Xerox copies. The certs are a nicety but don't detract from the item if they aren't there.

          Pics of the stock in question would be helpful in determining potential value. Even the smears varied greatly in colors and pattern. And condition as well, although that doesn’t seem to be much of a factor nowadays considering the rarity and frenzy for them.

                Yeah, same picture. If it’s the eBay stock you got, it’s not a return; it’s an older commercial HTG-P stock. It’s also not a full smear. More of a semi-smear, or even a regular forest camo finish with a smaller pattern and the colors got smudged a little bit during production. It’s got a BDL bottom metal inlet, correct? Also, is the rear sling swivel stud a wood-screw type? If so, that’s another indicator it’s not a return. USMC stocks had Wichita sling swivels installed, so would have a steel insert in front and in the butt for them. Take off the sling swivel stud off the butt and run a magnet in the area where the stud would screw in. If it doesn’t stick, that means no steel insert.
