The Stock appears to match example in Mallory of an 1899 carbine which was within the correct production time period for Italian walnut. It is stained darker than the original color (regrettable decision #2) but the original color can be seen on the inside.

Upper or Mid band is original with U stamp and sling swivel. Rear stock swivel is inlaid with 2 screws, appears to be in correct position but haven't seen many examples.

Appears to be original 66" leather sling which Has been with the rifle as long as its been in my family, at least 70 years.

Any thoughts, questions or comments please let me know. Especially if the pictures aren't showing up.
