I picked this up at a gun show many years ago. From what I can tell it's all at it should be. Ser. range 4890800 and bbl 12/44 .Could this be a presentation stock.? What do you think. Does not look sanded but does have shiny hard finish. 
  Thanks

Beautiful stock! For the 4.8M serial range, a 12-44 barrel is very late, I suspect it may have been changed? Mid 6M serial rifles with this barrel date have the type 3 band. Need close up pics of the parts to assess further.

I used to make my own gun stocks for cap and ball Kentucky rifles and that is what I looked for in the blanks. You have a choice piece of wood there.
Could be a presentation or just a lucky find. The finish looks original.

Yep, a 12-43 sounds right.

Presentation stocks didn't have the CC as the rifles weren't accepted by the gov., but that stock is equal to other fancy grade presentation stocks that I've seen.

Agreed.... Beautiful stock
Looking like it has the 'Bump' from another carbines Op slide handle.
Is it marked OI in the slingwell ?
Just curious if it may be a Integrated stock ??
Low wood ?

Anyone know if the later Hand Guard would be correct ?
I know this ones close to that Transitional slot.

Would like to see more pictures, Thx for sharing it.

PS: " (Shiny) "...  Might have been a bit of BLO rubbed on it years ago.
I'd leave as is........... too nice to mess with.
