Any marks in the sling well? How about an overall picture as well. If I looked this closely at my wife, I'm not sure I could identify her either. However, it looks okay so far.

There are no markings that I can find in the sling well. I will take an overall picture when I get home from work tonight.

My book says no mark in sling well. I cut should be 2.4" long. Is it still hi wood? I think it's good.

They may or may not be a small W in the sling well. Sometimes it's very had to see. There should be some numbers inside where the receiver sits on a ledge most often on the right side. I would say it is an original Winchester stock.

Thanks everyone. I was hoping it was real. I have owned a few carbines but never a Winchester so I was unsure about the stock. The rifle is an early Winchester with the separate spring tube. The rear sight and type 1 band are not original for sure ( they are not even good fakes ). Every other part is Winchester, I just don't know if they are "correct" for the gun. I will post a picture of the complete rifle as soon as I get it assembled.
