Thought about it and my previous post might have sounded abrupt. However, ugly is an opinion and a subjective one at that. With some good photos, we can probably give you better advice on an "upgrade" on stock, parts, finish, etc. With the rifle making a round trip to Greece, some things might be better left alone. For one, I find the almost black parkerizing found on these originally far more attractive (even if worn) than the last light gray they were given during or after WWII. It also sounds like the stock may not be the original. Springfield relaxed standards very little, if ever, and replaced parts will only show slight cosmetic changes over time. Regards.
