    I have been looking at the Case Barlows a bit. I don’t have many multi blade knives overall. Thinking about branching out a bit. While browsing around I saw pictures of a discontinued Case Gunstock. I had been looking at the GEC 44 as well. Still some around at the dealers.

    Any opinions on the gunstock? Better off with a Barlow? I would grab a 44 but I do like Stainless steel.

    Saw them making the 44s at the Rendezvous last year.

    I don't have a Case Gunstock, so I don't have input on that. I got one of the Case Peacock Bone barlows from this run and it had to much blade play when closed for me so I sent it back. Handles weren't quite what I was expecting either. I like my Buffalo Jack.

    I have had great luck with Case'e large gunstock (130 pattern). Blade play and centering has been excellent on all I have handled. Complaints I have heard include the main blade being on the small size compared to the handle size.

    Thanks for the pictures and the opinion. Good to hear they got quality control right on this model. I like the jigging and colour on yours.

    The GEC 44 is an excellent knife. I own two and they are among my favorites. Like you, I wish one came in stainless, but some care keeps it looking nice.

    I'd highly recommend one
