Default SI Type 2 barrel band Help ID

I am going through some parts and listed this barrel band on Ebay. I would not let a guy in Italy bid and he told me it was fake. My dad was a gunsmith that passed away in 1989. I saved the military parts bin. This was in it? I have no reason to think its fake but I was only 13 when he died. Any help would greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Matthew

SI is legit for a type 3 band, although the pics are grainy it appears to be cut down from a type 3 to a type 2.

Fake is really too strong a word. It is a type 3 barrel band cut down to look like a type 2 barrel band. This was very common. After it was cut down it was refinished.
Some rein-actor might want it for $10-20. It is really a job to cut them down, smooth out the saw cut marks and refinish them.

YEP Rover , it is a cut down type three band . I'm sure your Dad knew it was a cut down and that's one reason he never offered it sale . I have taken several off carbines and sell them for $5.00 to $10.00 each to re-inactors . I have two in my for sell box now . Both AI stamped . Bob
