Ahhh... Back in the days when Ruger would ship their guns with very uncommon wood on a common basis. I had an amazing spalted maple (like a birds-eye pattern) out of the box once.
Unless lettered for a special run or recipient, it's an ordinary 10/22 but the wood may interest some collector-minded folks. I'd put a $280-300 sticker on it myself, but I've been known to be arbitrary in valueing my weaponry.
Are you going to sell it?
If so I would hope you would post it in the classifieds
on this forum. If you decide to go the Auction route
please post that back here also. I think $300.00
is in the ball park JMHO
That's actually the earliest maple stock 10/22 I've heard of. The previous early # I had noted was 232-54643.
Ruger using maple at the time, instead of birch, was just a matter of economics. At the time, Ruger just happened to get a good deal on a big batch of maple blanks, so used those instead.
To get one tiger striped like in the picture, was luck of the draw!
The only place I have seen tiger stripe maple like that these days are on custom built Long Rifles. That appears to be the top grade of tiger stripe maple. I would keep that baby in the safe as the stock alone is worth big $$$$
