Just thinking about what will hold its value into the future. I think original GI wood will appreciate in value. Of course condition will drive how high but as CMP rifles get picked over and folks wanting to re-stock or can only get woodless or barreled receivers, nice GI wood should carry a premium. Of course custom made stocks can always be built but nice old wood is only getting more scarce.

Just looking at what the price of Winchester stock have gotten to will answer that . An International Harvestor stock price of today might be realistic of what a nicely cartouched stock with a NFR or GAW might get to later .
Good commercial wood and workmanship will always have a bit of a premium over something you have to fool with for hours to "make it right ".

Condition will play a part also. Beat up wood won't get any better so the good stuff will appreciate like it does in so many types of "stuff" collecting.
Nice HRA wood has been climbing also. I attribute a lot of that to the number of rifles CMP has put on the market.
