    Carbine Stock ID

    I went digging around looking for parts and found an M1 Carbine stock and handgruard in my box-o-stocks. I actually don't remember where I got it. I suspect it is of foreign manufacture since the only markings I can find on it are a VS stamped on the neck of the stock right behind the rear lug and a numeral 1 stamped into the butt under the rear plate. There is also a little flaming star, near the heel of the grip, 6 pointed star with curling flames. There is a couple of what look like sharpie numbers on the stock too, a very European looking,
    31 on the side of the buttstock and another European looking 105 on the heel right above the little flaming star.
    Anybody have any clues where it came from? Italy, Greece or Korea?

    Nothing in the sling well that I can make out except tool marks from the routing operation. The wood is fairly dark and a redish tint, fairly close grained.
    The stock is not oily but seems to be evenly covered with a dark stain including the interior surfaces, like it was dipped in stain.
