Default Any advice on stock (and some BAV pics)

Got a BAV (service grade) today. Original stock has a (3 pin) repair.
All major parts have the same serial number stamp, so i want to keep them together. Is there a way to improve the look of the repair? Or should I leave it as is ?

While the three pins are obvious, I would not touch a thing. That carbine looks great, is in great condition, and the repair only adds to the history. If it bothers you alot, you will have to replace the stock. Its a case of either its historical, or its not gonna be there. MHO...

My honest opinion? If you want a prettier stock, replace it. Your call. But what you've bought is a piece of history.
A bunch of folks would love to have that stock..... but it's best left on that particular rifle. Again, your call.
Don't do anything rash!

Just an opinion,
Phil

I got a Bavarian at the SS a couple of weeks ago....I didn't realize in the store, that I have a pin repair too! 2 on each side, about 1" apart, exactly opposite each other. I was like, what the heck is this.....but then I realized that is part of the Carbines history, and it didn't bother me. Leave it as is, it is a good looking stock, and it will clean up nicely.

I have pins in my Bavarian and it doesn’t bother me. If it bothers you just buy another one then you will have two.

No complaint here. Way nicer that the stocks I got on either my SGs or Bavs.

If the receiver is also Win, consider it a bonus

OK then, I will leave it as is.
There is more history here then I expected.
The receiver is Winchester and is correct for the stock.
The slide, bolt, hammer, trigger housing, and barrel are also winchester.
All of the parts above are stamped with the last 4 digits of the serial number along with the hand gaurd.
The receiver and trigger housing are stamped "LGK K 0047".

Can anyone help ID the stamp on the barrel?

Thanks.

That is a Winchester proofed barrel. That is a "W" interlaced with a "P".

Winchester stock and barrel, it the receiver is also Winchester I would say you have a score on you hands. Either way I would keep the high wood stock, even with the pins it really looks to be in good shape!
