Laminate Question

1049 Views 9 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  Bigdibbs88
Recently picked up a 1938 147 that "Bubba" decided to sporterise. Fortuneately he just redid the stock. In researching what I would need to "restore" this rifle close to original, my information says it should have a walnut stock. The stock that was on it is laminate and serial number matched. Question, when was laminate stocks initiated. And, should I go with the laminate or walnut.

Why would you want to put a walnut stock on it if the stocks serial number matches ?
The stock has been heavily sanded, cut off at the forend, lost about 2-3 inches of the buttstock and has extra holes drilled for the sling swivel.
