Inland 5.3, Inland 7/44 barrel, SG slide and trigger housing, early Underwood stock, Winchester handguard, Underwood Type II bolt. More pics to come as itís apart.

Interesting story about the stock. Iíd love to hear if people think Iím right or wrong.

The stock is an early Underwood by Cartouche on the right side. I canít see any markings inside the sling well. Early Underwoods though would have been high wood. This is a low wood so it had me scratching my head. Then I looked more closely of the last 4 inches or so of the operating slide cutout. The cut is uneven and had knife marks in it.

So what Iím thinking is that this was done in the field by a soldier. He probably saw Type 3 stocks coming into the unit or had already realized that the longer cut meant better operation. While the stock does have armory markings, I would think that at rebuilt the but would be much cleaner. See and let me know what you think.
