Re: carbine stock on ebay

In my opinion, the stock is newly made copy, not a cut down rifle stock, as indicated by the workmanship and tool marks which are not consistent with tooling used by Springfield Armory. However, the folks who turn out the stock may have used a cut down rifle stock as their pattern, hence the clean out hole, even though it serves no practical purpose, but having a forend tip which is not pieced.
Still bogus, in my opinion.
