    Interesting SA SPG stock marking

    I must have posted this before as it is an old photo taken in 2008. It shows a SA SPG stock with drawing number and solid butt plate plus an additional marking Click image for larger version

    Another early SA SPG with the solid butt plate, note the rack number 18 on the forward part of the pistol grip. I would guess perhaps a wall rack where the rack number is easy to locate. On the A frame Arms Rack M1 or M3, alot of rifles were marked on the rear hand guard. All depends on who is in charge as to the location of the rack number.

    Before the M1 rifle the Model 1903 rifles were marked in many different places, but one location that is not common to the 1903 is the top tang of the butt plate. The one in my photo is marked Troop H 8th Cavalry, Trooper number 18.

      Forgot to add the following information: Troop H of the 8th Cavalry went to Mexico in 1916 and the stock was an early ram rod bayonet that was modified. Came from the CMP but no way to know if the barrel and action were original to the stock

    Another SA SPG with some additional personal markings. Either solid or trapdoor buttplate will fit. Stock is later large over small hole without drawing number. this stock is still solid and not cracked Click image for larger version

            Those are just really neat. I love seeing stocks with real history. Some of these remind me of the gas trap at Springfield with the unit history carved into the stock. The gca did a video were it was shown. Im torn between these as with my early restorations I only wanted un touched example's for my rifles yet these carved stocks have real history pouring out from them. Now I wish I had bought more carved stocks when I had the chance to. Thank you for sharing Robert.
