The only marks are :
S.A. LTD
1944
MADE IN CANADA
and some marks on the web but I can't read

Fit well on my belgium 1938 GP (without works) on and inside

My question are :
-is it a real stock or copy ?
-rare in France, same thing in USA ?

Regards
Hervé

Your stock appears authentic from your photos. It does appear that part of the retaining spring is broken off, but the stock looks like it is the real thing in nice condition. The strap also looks authentic. These straps are available here for about $10 US. I don't have a strap in front of me, so I don't recall what it ways, but it does have a Canadian broad arrow imprint. There are many stocks turning up for sale, and we are being flooded with excellent Chinese reproductions. The originals are made of a dense grade of walnut, but the Chinese ones are significantly lighter in weight as they are made of an unknown lightweight weight dyed to look like walnut. An authentic one sells for around $300, and a reproduction is about $100.

Hervé,
I wish I could buy that stock for 30 euros, whatever a euro is?
Has an approx. U.S. value of $300 - $500,
and I've never seen the straps for $10, usually $20 - $40.,
but prices depend on what neck of the woods you are in.
Here is your stock, and its family history.
Hervé, you got a very good price on that stock, you lucky dog.

PS. Note that not many parts on the FN Highpower are interchangeable
with the Inglis Highpower. The FN was manufactured to the metric
standard, and the Inglis was manufactured to the standard English and American "inch".

Hi Pancho
Thank for your reply and pics : I have already saw your collection in your website : wonderful
I have just a doubt about the marks position : yours is near the hinge, mine (see pic 4) is near the "rail" : is it correct ?
Anyway, this is not my main collection way (or I need to find a chineese Inglis !) so if somebody want to buy this one for a better price than in US and for his Inglis, contact me on :
[email protected]

Regards
Hervé

Pancho, these Inglis stock hangers are very commonly available. There is a seller in Canada who regularly sells them for about $10 each, and I have bought a few of them from him in the past year, though I can't find his address at the moment. He seems to have a good supply. I have also bought these on eBay, also for around $10. As a matter of fact, you can find at least one for sale on eBay almost every day. Today one is offered at an opening bid of $15 with no takers so far. Check it out at:

Aaron,
Thanks for the info.
I didn't think about ebay, shucks.
My prices come from gun shows in the New England area.
Everything is over priced and over taxed here.
Seems that with a proximity to Canada, I would have come
across a lot of the hangers, but have only seen a couple.
Again, thanks for reminding me about ebay.
Since ebay does not allow pistols, I have a tendency to stay away.
