I uncovered two of these while cleaning up the shop and it's been a Goldilocks adventure.
Do they fit an 1897? Nooooo...
Do they fit a Model 12? Noooo...
Do they fit a Browning A5/Remington 11? Nooo...

So - double of some sort?

They look like FN A5 to me.
Belgian/FN mfg A5 stocks are a bit different than the later Japanese made A5 . The fit of the wood to the frame is slightly different.

Thanks, that's what I thought at first but no - they're not for semi-autos (or pumps) as they have no

1) clearance channel for the action spring tube and bolt

and

2) the wood is solid in the wrist, between the upper and lower tang reliefs.

That would imply some sort of double barrel, where all the internal stuff is forward of the buttstock.[b][/b]

W/O the recoil spring hole in the stock, then perhaps one of the earlier styles for the Stevens 520 pump.

Honestly, with the chips, cracks and wood quality condition, I'm not sure it matters very much. I do find the fitment of the head to the action very odd on the one with it being assymetric. Maybe just a very rough stock turning. I don't believe they are from a magazine gun. They look like boxlock doubles without the autosafety rod hole drilled.
