Newbie with a question about a "New to me" 94

Good morning!

First post here. Local pawnshop find - a Mod 94 Carbine in .32 Winchester Special dates to 1950. It's had some reblueing done but I also did not pay much for it. Excellent shape overall and shoots really well.

My question is this. It has sling swivels and to my knowledge that is unusual. The rear swivel is screwed directly into the wood of the stock and the front swivel is integral to the forearm band. Can anyone tell me whether this setup could be original from the factory? I went through George Madis' book and only saw one 94 with sling swivels and the front one there was not part of the forarm band.

Thanks in advance for any thoughts you guys may have.

Just on a guess folks, I'm going to vote that those "mods" are not factory. Reason for saying so is just because that is not how those rifles were carried back in the day.

A reservation I have about that is that most gunmakers of that time would build one anyway you wanted "if you had the money"!

Just a guess is all.
