    Identifying a stock with no markings

    I recently bought a stock from Numrich sold as "Used GI Refinished & Repaired". It has no markings. It is clearly not new, but in fairly good condition. Is there any way to identify it's origin based on tooling marks or profile?

      OK, I will do that. I have done a bunch of searching and can't seem to find many good comparisons. The only thing I think I can identify is a medium sized back porch.

          That looks like a birch (or beech?) replacement stock. Huge numbers were used in rebuilds, may well have been commercially made. I have them on two of my three Garands. They work fine.
          The thief may possess something he stole, but he does not own it.
          The owner has a right to take his property back from the thief.

            That makes sense. That would also explain why there are no markings. This will be perfect on my Frankenstein Garand I am building.

            Here is a pic of the butt.

              It kind of looks like the top rails of the stock were sanded to me. Might be wrong.

                I went over the whole stock with 400 grit a couple times, but I think you mean significant sanding. Numrich did list it as refinished, so could be.

                    Here are a few more pics. I don't think that is a stamp on the bottom of the grip. The photo looks more like a stamp than it does in person. The top of it is not straight, but wavy.
