definitely a garand receiver so the "born on date" is likely 40's or 50's as to when the thing was built to its current configuration is anyones guess. Im not a garand expert but if that is a factory setup I would say you have rare and collectible piece. Ive never seen one like that with that particular stock, very interesting and cool looking
Looks like it has solid lower band, Shuff normally uses a standard band. Gas system also looks different. Hard to say what commercial company or what Gunsmith made it
Is there anything stamped on the receiver or inside of the stock that may be a clue ?
Is it 30.06 or 308/7.62x51 ?
No ,thats USGI drawing numbers. Look in the barrel channel of the stock, alone the side of receiver for a name ,not numbers
Again, post this over of Shuffs forum. They are they experts on these rifles.
