Default Carbine Stock Identity...

Good Morning Forums:

I recently picked up what appears to be largely a Winchester made M1 Carbine (serial #1052XXX) from a LGS. Believe it or not, I walked in to check to see if any .22 cal ammunition was available. There was none, but I saw this beautiful carbine for a great price and decided I must have it! Nope, I don't have any .30 Carbine ammo...guess I will have to go back...

In my tear down of the carbine to identify parts, the stock is unmarked, except for inside I can identify a "B". In all of my research, I am unable to find who made this stock. Any information is greatly appreciated!

Thank You!
Michael

Winchester stamped letters inside their stocks. Hard to tell from your pic if it has the flat bottom at the forearm area. What's going on with the butt plate area? Did someone extend it? BTW, that's a nice, nice rifle and stock. Do you want to sell it?

Nice score! I still need to find a Winchester some day like that!

Posting some additional photos of the stock's belly area (is the bottom flattened or rounded?) and both side of the sling well (sling and oiler removed) might help others with ID.

I know I would also be interested in seeing some additional photos of it's other bits as well - barrel band, trigger group, bolt, whatever you would like to share.

Nice way to end the year.

Highwood, I cut, thats a nice stock. Whats added onto the end, a rubber buttpad? Was the stock altered to do that?

Looks like the rear sight was upgraded with some non-standard staking. Maybe wartime out in field?

Yeah, looks like they hammered the staking on the rear sight.
I've always wondered why people put recoil pads on Carbines. Traditional sporting look? Extensions, I can understand why they did back when it didn't matter.

Get a mag glass and look closely in sling well; Win used TINY little w's and they are sometime rather obscure.

It almost looks like that extension is fully reversible. Hope so. Put up some more detailed pictures for sure..

Thank you everyone for your replies!

Please keep in mind I am NOT an expert when it comes to Carbines, but I do enjoy the learning process. I have identified just about every part as Winchester, except the stock (which is why my question) and the hammer. Here are more photos...and yes, the extension was nothing more than ??leather built up and secured with a couple of tack nails.




Yep, the site was staked on...but it appears to be original, as the stake marks match perfectly with marks on the site...


Writing on the sling...no idea what it says...


Barrel:






Bolt:


Slide:


Trigger Group:


As for the stock, I can find no marks in the slide well. I will look again!

Michael

Nice nice nice rifle. Wish it was mine. Whatever you paid it was worth it.
