The bottom of the fore grip is rounded but you can tell there was some heavy sanding done on the stock when it was refinished and cut down

This is an Underwood stock most probably as it does not have three hole under the butt plate. Winchester 99% of the time had the jig holes upper and lower from the center screw hole unless it was another manufactures stock. Underwood had many of their stocks this way also as Winchester made many of theirs. Underwood also had other manufactures early on make them like RMC as I have seen. Hope this helps. Rick B

Here are a few examples and also you will notice they have inspectors marks on the inside but not always in the same place. Rick B

Am I not seeing 3 holes under the plate? With rounded fore grip and smaller box it might be Und. I have one that fooled me at first that it was Win.

The Underwood stocks with the locator pin holes were made by Marlin not Winchester.

So Marlin used the same Jigs? I have seen a W in some so what did Marlin use for an indicator? Why was the same inspector for Underwood and WRA "GHD" I'm still learning about the carbines. Rick B

Dug out a few early I-Cut Underwood's and here is a Marlin marked with holes as you indicated.
