    Posted: Sep 13 2022 at 3:22pm
I just wanted to share with everyone that I called What A Country today to see what kind of carbine stocks they had available.  The gentleman asked me if I had an iPhone and if I could FaceTime him on his personal cell phone.   I called his cell and he walked me around the shop asking me what type of stock I was looking for, I told him P-U, M-U or LW-U.  He showed me several stocks and handguards in each maker, each in very nice shape and with some nice cartouches.  I ended up taking a very nice thick low wood M-U with a close to matching M-U handguard for $240 out the door, shipped.  I will post photos when they arrive.  I’ve never had a company willing to video call me to show me their products and tell me if it doesn’t arrive as expected they will replace it with another of my choosing.  Give www.whatacountry.com a peek and you may be as surprised as I am.   I purchased an NPM stock from them last year but it was one directly from their site and it was as advertised as well.

Good to hear, looking forward to seeing pictures of the stock when you get it. I have always had good experiences when dealing with them.

Awesome, have only had good experiences with them also. Got a nice type 3 Winchester stock to replace one some idiot put a fake stamp on, which was a real nice winchester stock :(. dang thing looks amazing. you will be very pleased. When I ordered mine, he did the same thing (facetime). He then called me back about 5 minutes later, and said he found a crack in it that we had not seen when facetiming, and said "I find you  better one, I will charge you same price" and showed it to me. Handguard looks like it was made for it also. When I got it, i was blown away at how good of condition it was. A little dirty, but cleaned up great. No huge dings.

Awesome good deal and service ! I have bought several items over the years from them, always a good transaction. Story time: My Uncle was a Marine BAR gunner in Korean war, about 10 years ago I built a very large shadow box for him that included a full size, highly detailed resin BAR , I acquired an original BAR Mag belt and needed original mags. I called WhatACountry.... told them my story...dont remember who I talked to but... just good folk, this guy looked around and found all magazines needed that had blemishes or small dents that basically might have rendered them unusable... he sold them all to me for 5 bucks each, but they were great mags to load in the belt, even with ammo and leave the mag flap open to display. Uncle Very Pleased. Cheers, JB

I’ll call him tomorrow to add a few to my order.  When it comes in I’ll message you and we can settle up for the $20 and shipping.  MRD?
