The Italian Army standardized their service rifle with the issuance of the M1 Garand after the war. Recognizing the importance of the newly formed NATO of which Italy was a member, the decision was made to have a standard service rifle round for all nations. This meant that the Italian Army used both the original M1 Garand in 30.06 and converted their existing rifles to 7.62x51 after the founding of NATO.
These wood stocks have been sitting in storage for decades, having been removed from their host rifles when the BM59 was issued. They are all original stocks, with no aftermarket or commercial parts added. The rifles they were removed from were all in active service, and they were not sealed in plastic when they were removed. This means the stocks will come to you needing to be cleaned, with there being signs of rust on the metal components. With some elbow-grease you can clean all of these stocks up so that they look great on your M1 Garand.
