    Posted: June 29 2020 at 4:55pm
I took delivery of a newly manufactured Mk III* foreend from Prestigious Wood Stocks up in Drayton Valley, Alberta, Canada. I got one of the B grade foreends, so it has a couple very small chips on a couple edges that are barely noticeable. The price was such that I thought it worth a try. With shipping it ended up being $74 US. This foreend is beefy. It's going to take some work to fit and profile it down but so far I like what I see. The only thing I would say may be a shortcoming is that it does not have the brass wire run through the rear. Other than that it sure looks right.

The company also lists Mk III handguards, No 4 furniture and No 5 furniture. This is all new made and prices don't seem bad to me.

Please note I have no affiliation with Prestigious Wood Stocks. I am a customer only and this is my first delivery from them.

A Square, this is newly made and quite nice. I plan to put this on my 1906 to get her serviceable and make a recommendation to them to look into Mk I timber.

I've chatted with him about MkI and M1 carbine wood - he is open to anything but needs a pattern to copy first.
