Welcome to the forum! There should be an interesting story behind this gun. Is there anyone in your family who could fill in some blanks? We like stories.

My guess is your great-grandfather replaced the stocks and had the gun refinished as a way of dressing up an otherwise generic piece. This was done with many military surplus rifles by hunters after each world war, as well as pistols and revolvers.
