    All in all, definitely not a bad price and it will serve just fine as a shooter. I don't think that I have heard any negative opinions on the Green Mountain barrels that Gibbs used. Just know that your receiver will be painted and not parkerized. For $200 more an all USGI Remington could be found if you are patient.

    Does the rifle have a wood or synthetic stock?

    The rifle is being looked at by a neighbor. he asked me for my thoughts.

    He decided to just buy it.

    It has a wood stock ..... it looks like a military issued rifle unless you look closely.
