Perfectly matched stock and handguard in such a extreme tiger stripe pattern, in a production carbine is in my opinion far fetched.

It is beautiful none the less.
Amazing how a man can just tell another man he's full of it without a bit of investigation. xm15e2: you are bringing a knife to a gunfight.

If you read my posts I indicate that if it is a presentation carbine of some kind its a different story.

Investigate what? OP isnt telling us.

OP isnt willing yet to clarify.

Last clue we got was 4 "character" SN.

Beautiful carbines especially the tiger stripe. I understand the value of presentations, just saw a nickel plated IBM presentation recently, but I'm wondering about late Inland's and Winchester's. What makes them so desirable? It is their scarcity? Fit and finish or maybe all of it? Don't have one other than a para, but thinking of giving them a look since it appears many advanced collectors seek them out. I pass up many at shows and auctions just because they are low wood. Thinking that is a mistake.

A through G BQ. Which letter would it be? Looking at the wood I would guess more towards G.

I don't remember you mentioning the stock was that nice. Nice carbine.

My question for BQ is this. Four digits serial??? I am guessing the serial is a 4-digit ALPHANUMERIC not just a numerical serial. Quit the giggling BQ and fess up to those who don't get it. Tell them how close to the end of production that 4-digit serial is. I am guessing late 1944?

BTW, the extra " 3 inches " is an optical illusion caused by the back carbine being further away from the camera.
Just my two cents.

Never knew there were digits other than numbers placed there, other than X marked ones I mean.

Congrats, fantastic find!
the picture makes it hard to tell, is the finish of safety and mag catch a phosphate coating?

Stock is also a long channel stock, late production.
