    Listed as US Model of 1917, Winchester 30/06, Monte Carlo Stock.
    My hopes were high until I saw the stock listed. My checkout anyway but not expecting anything but a bubba job.

    I got this......yep.... uh. That's what I thought.

    The op is thinking out loud. He's found a rifle at an auction tomorrow. He's not expecting much but he's gonna go look at it anyhow and try to buy it if it's up to his specs.

    If the sights haven’t been ground off and you can put it in an original stock, go for it!

    Follow up ...... went to the auction. Only original parts were the action, bolt and trigger group. Someone, probably in the 1960’s, did a fairly nice job of sporterizing it. Appeared to have an older scope on it. Since it wasn’t what I wanted I passed.

    At one time I had a nice collection of old sporterized rifles. Some were great, some I had to do a lot of work on to make them usable. Wish I still had most of them. There was a Jap carbine that the Chinese had converted to 7.62x39 and someone had fitted a laminated stock that had a lot of potential. Also a Colombian Mauser in 30.06 that was nice.
