With the stock ordnance wheel that size and location it almost has to be Inland.
With the mods make to the stock, the original mfg really makes little difference, JMHO.

Afternoon gentlemen. I took some photos in sunlight of the stock, and of a few areas I was asked to take photos of, namely the bridge and CC. Hopefully, these work. If you all want higher res photos, they're in the google photos album in the original post.

Try lighting the sling bevel at an angle. Sometimes the angled lighting can help reveal the markings better than direct lighting.

Can you picture in front of the wood bridge so we can see how aggressive the milling/router work is?
When you can.

Yes, I can certainly do that once it is day outside. I have no reason to doubt the CC is fake as it definitely looks to have been there for a long time, as has the name carved into the grip, but this is only my observations, and admittingly, I'm not the most knowledgeable on such stamps, so take that with a grain of salt.

I saw that in person, yet I wasn't 100% sure if it really was an OI or not. I'll definitely take some closeups of that area under bright light tomorrow and report back. I thought it was inland initially because of the crossed cannons looking very similar, if not identical to one on an AA marked OI I have. I've honestly never seen a stock with extra holes under the buttplate, so I can't help you there unfortunately.

I magnified the pic of of the sling well, look close at possible remnants of an OI marking, but did Overton stocks have extra holes under the butt plate? Regardless, you got that thing pretty cheap!

Sorry if this is the wrong forum! I picked this stock up off of ePay recently (Auction number 224183750479). It was a cheap high wood that hasn't been re-arsenaled in spite of the obvious, so I figured if anything, it may make a decent shooter stock. These photos are from the auction, and I do not have any of my own yet as I just got it in tonight and I am currently letting it soak in RLO as this thing was pretty dry. The sling well has no obvious markings, and where the buttplate goes there is an extra hole on the top and bottom. The stock to me, appears to have type 1 barrel band markings, as well as appearing to be made out of walnut with the inlays possibly being Pine. Comparing to other stocks I have, I think this may have been an Inland, but I wanted to ask you all if you guys had an idea as to who made it.
