    US Model 1917 with pretty wood

    Nothing spectacular, odd or rare but I think the wood is neat.

    I wonder if they just cleaned the years of grit, grime, and old oil away.

    That wood looks like some of the late replacement Birch wood I bought for M1icon rifles. Same color and figure...

    A two digit rifle was massaged to serial #1 at OGCA about 15 years ago. Serial number placement revealed the fake. I image it is still out there.

    Jim--
    Seems to be a WWII replacement birch stock. Sometimes you get a very nice grain in the wood.
