I have a CMP MK1 that has come home from Greece. It is a fine shooter with the original Nov 1919 barrel. It sure is ugly though. The stock looks as though it was shaped with a forming chisel and not sanded much; I have been told that right after WW1, Springfield let their Q.C. fall off sharply for a period. Anyways, I am soliciting opinions on wheather I can pretty it up or should I leave it? It has a hatcher hole so it was rebuilt at least once. It also has Rem. bolt guts although the bolt itself is right for the rifle. I was thinking of putting a CMP S stock on it and having it reparked in gray zinc to bring it back to the condition of it last WW2 (?) rebuild.
