Here is a new one for me and I am curious if anyone knows the maker. It is incredibly light (1# 3oz) for a Interarms commercial 98. The exterior is almost textured and almost appears fuzzy. Any help with ID'ing the maker?

Funny story about that finish most old browns have...saw a sportsman 78 on gunbroker with a stock that had that exact finish. Ad said synthetic stock. I bought it thinking I was getting a deal on a brown stock and got it in hand still couldn't tell for sure bc it was nicely bedded and barrel channel was tight. Took it apart and it was wood lol

I bought a rifle one time that had BEAUTIFUL wood in the pictures and when I got it in my hand is was printed wood grain on plastic. I never thought to ask before I bought it and was certain it was wood. Educations are expensive sometimes. smile

That would be my guess, Brown has the mold lines on the sides

True, but they are usually not visible on the finished product. That texture, color, and inletting all are consistent with brown - but I’ll admit I haven’t seen nearly as many Garrett ultralights as I have browns.

I agree with others as it looks like a Brown. Back in the early 90's, I worked at a gunshop that built custom rifles. The stock finish of choice was a "wrinkle finish" paint by Krylon. It came in a spray can and was sold by Brownell's. The finished product looked like this close-up below, as you still see a few of the older painted stocks floating around. The textured feel was great, but if you got mud or dirt on the stock it was a PIA to get out.

Bought the stock above from 160 and in the process of bedding it. Had to remove a fair amount of material from the inletting and inner walls around the magazine box to get the action sitting straight, and in the process, I came across a few areas where it *appeared* the stock had been molded out two vertical pieces ala Brown.

However...the stock has quite a bit of cast off. It definitely ain't subtle...I've only ever seen shotguns with this much cast-off.

Wondering if AKWolverine or Cajun know if Brown did stocks with cast-off in the old days?

The coonass is 100% correct. I have a Brown from this time period that I finished with the black “wrinkle finish” paint. After you received the stock you had to sand and fill the pores. The spray on “wrinkle finish” covered the bondo job and any mold lines in addition to giving a textured surface.
