I have been looking on Ebay for a replacement stock for a Ruger 10/22. Some sellers had the same stocks and the prices were similar. I found one that caught my eye, very diferent and exotic and I almost bid on it. I wrote the seller asking what was the stock made of and the manafacturer since they had not listed that info in the description. I was told maker unknown and it was made of some kind of polymer. After I did some research on such things as feedback ratings on these sellers and buyers connected with this "exotic stock" a trend appeared. The seller would have a neg or later a negative remark made and the buyer would have negative feedback left. To shorten things up for you readers some sellers were taking airsoft rifles(some costing $20 and never meant to be turned into an actual firearm) and doing a little cut and file work and selling them for big dollars to old John Q Public. If any interest go to Ebay and look for item #230187529430 and 180174685955, or user ID"S moore9807,,n771fy(just sold one for $175), evansangus(who was had also), and sumathisumathat( paid over $280 for one, and now has it back on Ebay). In all but the last person I mentioned above, never was anything said about the stocks originally being made from an airsoft gun!! Her listing was revised and it stated the stock was made from an airsoft. Just never know when the Hi-Point carbines might get their turn in one of these scam attempts. Was just a not needed heads up to all I am sure. Then there could be a not so experienced person fall for such as this.
