    Could also be a duffel cut and the front band screws and cleaning rod were lost during the transition.

    As for the "red" colour:



    I recall that the Japaneseicon treated the timber with Potassium Permanganate as a mould / rot inhibitor. Creosote works but it has a rather distinctive smell and is a nasty skin irritant, not "features" to be desired on a combat rifle.

    On the other hand, Australianicon coachwood, as found on Lee Enfield and L1A1 stocks, often exhibits a faint whiff of Creosote, especially when "heated up".
