This is a straight comb stock from a 1948-1949 standard rifle.
This stock has been expertly refinished, and the new finish shows minimal signs of wear. The stock has been cut to accommodate a red Winchester recoil pad. The stock checkering is crisp and clearly definedexcept for on the grip, where some wear can be seen in the listing photos.
Although this stock is not bedded, the recoil lug and tang area of this stock have been sanded and slightly relieved, as is typical when prepping for bedding. This stock will fit a standard rifle as-is, but is an ideal candidate to be bedded to its next rifle.
The 1948-1949 stock is unique in that it has the oval extended grip of the pre-war rifles, but is inletted for the post-war tapered tang. This stock will fit any standard rifle produced from 1948 thru 1963.
