Re: help do you know what this is
is that sling mount a exact 2" ( preeety close) from the woods end ?
2" was the designated measurement at the time but not solely used
but helps point at military if so ..
and how does the insert mount look ? polished or filed ?
filed increases the chances of it being a "rushed into service " rifle
polished could be anything
and yes your photography is as good as mine ...
the flat mount for the sling the dual hole and position point it towards being a possible military weapon.. but without more info it is hard to say
the pic above (last one) would help a bit if in focus ..
also the area that looks like its missing a band that would be a good area to inspect for workmanship or alterations that may indicate military usage
