Is it just me or is there a inward-facing hump on the bottom of that stock? I thought the original M1 Stocks were flat on the bottom.

What a great looking stock with the ERA cartouche and Winny barrel. What is the manufacture of yer carbine?

It (the receiver) is a 1943 Winny. I think only the small parts (sites, safty, mag release...) are not "W".

The stock is flat/straight on the bottom. The "hump" looks like rounding on the edge.
Here is a pic showing the potbelly (top) and the new Winny (bottom).

Congratulations on your carbine. You did well. Those Bavarians are worth the price. I would leave the stock as is. I had Rick Borecky fix a Rockola stock earlier this year and he replaced (or perhaps hid) the pins with wood plugs. The plugs are about as obvious as the pins. My stock had a big chunk out of the side so I needed it fixed anyways. But with yours, if the pins are strong and holding, I would leave it alone. I think a stock has more value in its original state. You can always touch up the finish with BLO. I like the Bavarian markings since it helps to prove it is a Bavarian carbine.

I predict in a couple of years, our Bavarians will be real collector items and you will see a lot of people posting messages like 'I should have bought more'. When the carbines are all gone, I bet your Bavarian will rise several hundreds of dollars in value.

I agree that stock is great. Don't change a thing, it looks great the way it is.

Default LGKT stamp on the receiver?????

Son of a Gunny.
I have several with the LGKT stamps on the trig house but none on the receiver. Didn't know they were marked as such. Can you tell me where on the receiver it is stamped? Or a pic of it?
Thanks.

Default Thank you

Might be unique to LGKK stamps.
My two LGKT guns and one LGKOO gun don't have receiver markings.
Thanks for the pics.
