    Post WWII SPG cartouche rebuild

    Here is a post WWII with the rebuild SPG cartouche I put together. I found this SPG stock that started it's Garand life as a GAW (faint cartouche remains). The stock looked kind of rain stained so I decided to put a CMP FG 43 SA with it's original barrel that kind of looks like it spent a few days in the rain too. The throat looks reparked and the pad was not chromed so I concluded it would be a good period match for the SPG stock (47 to 50). I tried to match up the park and wear on the parts as best I could with parts I had on hand.

      The SA SPG rebuild stamp was used from 1947 to 1951 Pyle's "The M1 Gas Trap Garand" and is also listed in Canfield's new book
      "The M1 Garand Rifle" on page 453. I have also seen M1 carbines with the post war SA SPG rebuild stamp too.

      The only place I did not see any information about this post war stamp was in GCA Journal Winter 2014 article "Post War Cartouches:
      A Window into Time
