    What to Make of this Stock???

    Appears to be a large over small hole SPG that's been modified then unmodified. Note remnants of a drawing number on bottom.

    Any information is appreciated.

    The stock went through a rebuild and had the rear modified for a trap door buttplate only but not doweled and drilled as the later ones were done. The stock looks to have been restored back to a no trap design by a collector. Not sure who repaired the top screw hole , a collector perhaps ? I have seen top screw holes repaired by the armory but this does not appear to be done by the armory by what I see in the pictures .

      I would agree. I did something similar to a beat up GHS. I wanted a stock to put a solid buttplate on, so I modified the butt to take the solid plate. I'm not sure why the shadow of the trap is still showing on this stock.

      Brian, try to get an accurate measurement of the length of the stock from the front of the ferrule to the heel of the butt. Might help to figure out how much got cut off when. Also, in the absence of a cartouche, might it not be a GHS that the collector wanted to make look like a JPG.

        I don't think it was a GHS . I believe it actually was a Large over Small hole SPG stock . Look closely at the shadow around the holes , it looks to be one of the first , I guess you can call it , 'quick' modifications where they routed out the back end for the trapdoor buttplate to fit and nothing else . This would have been the first type modification done before they started to put a dowel in the large hole and redrill both holes to the same size for cleaning kits . The stock would have a gap or bird's beek at the bottom ( toe ) where the stock meets the trapdoor buttplate . Robert and Rick both should have some good pictures of this modification from some of the original barnwood and have better information and more accurate information on this modification as well .

          Some of the no-trap stocks had a "quick" modification to convert them to use the trap door. As George stated, there will be a gap at the toe when the new butt plate is installed.

          Not all the large over small hole stocks had the drawing number or the non serif P in a circle as late production will show the changes

          The non serif P is correct also on early SPG. Rick B

              Curt, very nice early stock for a direct or just early conversion to gas port rifle. On some of these stocks the only additional markings from being rebuilt is the second P proof stamp. I have also seen early SPG stock conversions with the large size RA-P on the pistol grip too. You can see they spent a lot of time on the butt area, drilling out the small hole and a sleeve in the large hole to have the two equal size holes

                  That is the coolest thing I think I've ever seen. And one is even unmodified. Got my gun porn in for today.
