the grain of the wood gets really wild from the pistol grip area towards the buttstock. The remaining grain has a very strong character and looks better in person. It should match up well when everything is oiled.
Of course the stock will need a little bit of attention as it is dry and has a few dings, but it is good USGI wood as it came from the CMP. The pistol grip has a non-serif 'P' on it. Lock up is nice and tight.

I don't have gauges, but the rifle is graded as a CMP 'Service Grade' M1D rifle. The crown is in excellent shape, and the bore looks extremely nice. The bullet test was performed with '66 HXP M2 ball.
