That stock is a type 3 in its current form. From those pictures, you can't tell if it started as a type 2 or a type 3. It also has rebuild stamp on left side, not the best choice for a restoration.

How about this one? Can you tell if it was a type II or III?

Looks like a 3 but it is hard to tell without the hand guard and without examining it or at the very least closeup pictures. A type 2 would be a high wood with oval sling cut out. You would want a high wood if you want a type 2.Once cut down it is basically a type 3. Hereís some info from carbine collectors website. Hope it helps. http://www.uscarbinecal30.com/stocks.html

It's like a cut and uncut op rod with the Garand. My 1944 Garand has the correct op rod, but it is cut. It doesn't bother me. I'd like a Type II stock for my Carbine. I don't mind if it was cut. Especially if it is half the cost, which is what I've been seeing on these. I just need help knowing if a stock is a Type II Cut or if it is a Type III. The only think I know to look for is a slight difference in color where it would have been cut.

That's a low wood. Unable to tell if cut down but my guess is that it was always a low wood. Any markings in the sling well?

With the early circle P proof I would say it was a type 2 cut down to low wood at rebuild by the P on the face of the grip.
