    There was a story that Winchester was short of wood so they dug into the special figure wood to make M1 stocks to carry on production. Very nice.

    I wonder if he just took that M1 from that guy during surrender? Now awaiting a backhand swipe since as eyes are closed... Wish we had five seconds before that in picture.

    Nice, nice and clean. I had one for repair a while back and I had to replace the grip scales. It turned out nice and I didn't make an offer on it then. My mistake... That one's nice.

    Pics here would be priceless, the metal came fitted to the wood. That's how it was issued, not in parts to be assembled. If your wood is full length to the muzzle then it should be very close. ...
