I'm guessing that 218 Bee had to be a rebarrel...maybe at the same time the new stock and forearm were added.

Most definitely, since the .218 Bee was introduced by Winchester in 1938.

Maybe the Bee was an early prototype? Very early?

I'll simply add this... If you send me the stock for that M88/.358 I will refinish it for free. I have refinished a BUNCH of stocks, after learning my technique refinishing expensive antique furniture. I will supply pictures and references, if you want!

I own a .308 M88, but have not fully refinished it. I have, however, fully refinished these M100s which are pretty much twins to the M88. See what you think!!
