Found this at the local funshow. Appears to be all original. Rifle is duffel cut under the rear band. Does the sling look right?

Sharp stock cartouche & barrel band cut = vet bring back. AW letter prefix is from Terni made late 42 - maybe early 43.

The sling... that late in the war, quite a variety of slings were used, so this could be legit. I'm not that sharp on slings, though.

Overall, it was a good grab!! :bigrin: SW
