If you want a new stock set, you could try to find a Boyd's. Some people have had problems with fit, but mine work GREAT. I got the set on sale direct from Boyd's for like $80. I sanded it down and shaped a little, as they are really FAT, like later USGI stocks. Then a few coats of BLO and a wipe on poly finish (in hindsight, I should have used Tung Oil Finish, but couldn't find any. The Poly looks good anyway)

I put my Winchester Danish M1 in that stock. The parkerizing on the rifle looks almost new (except the bolt), so the whole thing looks almost new. Shoots great. I was pegging a 6" gong at 200 yards sitting with Korean surplus on Saturday. (well.. hitting like 3 out of 5...)

The stocks from boyd's, at least the walnut stocks, do have a light coat of BLO. Easy to sand off/strip.
