Well I like it. I'm like Captaincalc, I wouldn't change a thing, and it would be a shame to part it out.

Yeah I am not looking to part it out. The stock has been sanded. It does look good though.

I'm with you, the cheek rest inlet on the left side appears to be cut like a repro stock and nothing like a USGI example.

It is a USGI stock that has been sanded.

The one extreme I saw beyond the carbine mentioned by the OP was a Winchester M2 that had been chrome plated and also in a M1A1 stock. This was a registered M2 Carbine that I saw at a Virginia gun show a few years ago.

If you can find a metal plating company near you , they can safely remove all the chrome. I once had a 1920's chromed 1911 slide that came to me in a big box of parts. Took it to the plating company and I think they dipped it in some chemical process. Came out perfect with absolutely no chrome left on it..Had it reparked and it you'd never know it ever had chrome on it.
Just an option....

Possibly not chrome. Looks more like zinc plating.

Does Hydrogen Embrittlement occur in Chromed guns, such that they could fracture, or shatter?

Have you fired this weapon FK?


ed.; iirc, Phosphorous (as in Park coating), could exacerbate to a HIGH degree, this embrittlement process.......?
