Default IBM with Standard Products stock?

IGreetings,

I have an opportunity to pick up a IBM carbine 38xxxxx (that's what's on the barrel and receiver). It has a Standard Products stock (that look very nice) but I was wondering if that stock could be correct for IBM carbines or should it be a "IBM" stock on it?

Note: This would be my first carbine and I know less than nothing about them, so keep your answers "dumbed down" for me...

Since I don't know you or how much you know about carbines, I need to ask you how you conclude that the stock is Standard Products? What is the marking in the sling bevel?

Well, I son't know. Here is what he says "Standard Products stock (walnut) with Standard Products cartouche and circle-P cartouche under the grip"

From all the posted pictures, all I see is the circle "P" and the"P" has no little "tails" in it. There is also a large-ish red "2" painted on the on the left side in the middle of the butt stock. He's asking $700.00

As far as I know all IBM carbines had IBM marked stocks...JL-B, SC-B, BR-B, LW-B in the sling well. Some early ones had RMC-B marked stocks. The key is the 'B'....

Std. Products Rebuilt carbines after the war, they then stamped the stock
"Standard Products" no matter the maker "Inland,IBM, etc.
A WWII Std. Prod will have a code in sling cut, SJ, S-HB,.
Anyway Circle "P" means its not Std. Prod. or IBM.
