So the Minelli is an accurate reproduction of a WW2 era rifle? I thought the contour was wrong for either prewar or during.

The external contour is very close to that of my Keystone, but slightly fat in some places. The only place this is really an issue is where the lower band sits

As S99VG notes, the fatter profile is not necessarily a negative. NM M1 and M14 stocks were fat and heavy by design. It really comes down to personal preference.
