Re: Checkered stock on Remington model 514
Well I've been wrong before, but I always understood that a 514 was an economy gun, sort of a poor man's 5-teen Remington. That said, I can't imagine that an econo. rifle would come with a checkerd stock and I've never seen one as such. That's not to say that there weren't special order guns available or aftermarket replacement stocks that were available checkered. I would doubt it came from the factory like that unless I see evidence to the contrary.
Fear is a reaction..........Courage is a decision
