Does anyone think these look a little too nice for a real set of 1945 handguards? I'm trying to figure out if I want to bid or not. Is there any way to know for sure?

Kinda looks like Boyds, or maybe the CMP walnut right?

"You are bidding on a part taken from a Springfield Armory M1 Garand manufactured in May, 1945"

a SA M1 manufactured in May 1945.... That he purchased as a CPM SGS or SPEC grade :) Those are CMP walnut. The rear handguard is a dead giveaway
