Got it and my Winchester 44-40 (Little Big Horn 1876-1976 commemorative edition) out to the range today with my buddy and his 30-06. The .303 shot very well with good accuracy, no misfires or jams.

When I look at the wood I thought that was how it is suppose to be, never thought it was cut back.
Thanks for the info.

It's a judgment call, & only you can make it, "restore to original", or have "Dad's rifle".

Rather sad then, I had a close friend have a very similar situation, father was ex vietnam veteran with NZSAS. had a raft of PTSD issues and treated his kids badly, would take off into the bush for weeks on end. As a youngster I would go around to my mates place and his dad would be living in the kids tree house.  My Mate tried to reconnect with his dad later in life , and sadly never reconciled  with his dad or was able to get him to have anything with his grand kids as the Agent Orange cancer got him.

Important thing I learned myself was that you have to be sure to break the cycle of bad family parenting 
methods or you just carry them forward into your own kids.

Buster, pleased to hear that you Dad's rifle shoots well. 
Probably keep it as is for sentimental value if it was his hunting rifle. 

Goosic; that's a difficult situation with your father. Sorry to hear that.
You can't choose your family, but you can choose your friends.

It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice!

Goosic... my only recommendation with those would be to report them stolen, by serial number if possible. Assuming he holds on to them until he passes, pawn shops are required to run the serials of firearms to verify they are not stolen. Auction houses as well I believe. Won't get them back soon but it lays legal groundwork for it.

They are his rifles and revolvers. The stipulation we had agreed to decades ago was that I was to inherit the Parker Hale Enfield, to do with as I please. He had purchased two Weatherby rifles and as such outgrew the PH. The PH rifle was a stopgap for him until the Weatherby's showed up. We had a falling out over the family business and he decided to fire me,sell off all the equipment and trucks,and put the remaining small items in the shipping container.  He then retained a laywer and has made my sister, who I also have not seen in over ten years, the executor of his estate with anbadded claus that I do not receive anything upon his passing. Specifically the Parker Hale Enfield...
