    Offhand, it doesn't look right to me; but I'm not even close to being an expert

    Does not look right at all to me either.

    I'm going "fake."

    It's an authentic Pakistan Randall, but for some reason the stamp is wrong. :D

    Don't know if it's a real Randall or not, but if it is, somebody re-handled it.

    It's fake. There are a lot of fake Randalls coming out of Pakistan.

    Here is a real Randall Model 14 courtesy of the internet.

    Just goes to show you that you need to buy from a respectable dealer. I am a Colt collector and the availability of counterfeit boxes is troubling.

    I agree that the ricasso seems just a tad long.
