I posted this on gunboards and am too lazy to add original content.

Here are the pictures:

Has a nice splice on the toe of the stock and overall there are a lot of dings and scrapes. I am guessing that the stamp on the right side is indeed a unit marker? And if I can make out the hang tag on it, the barrel is a "4", which indicates that it is really eroded? I have yet to clean out the bore, but it looks quite dirty and brown.

Not a unit marking, it's the AV3 factory stamp. They made rifle stocks that were used as replacements on many Finn rifles.

(yeah, semi-necro post ;) )
