    Is this stock marking real or a fake?

    This is listed as an original stock marking. The listed (questionable) stock is the left picture.
    What do the experts here think of it.
    It's for sale on another forum and wouldn't like to see someone get ripped off.
    Thanks.

    Compared to a real one. The real pic does not have the receiver installed (right darker picture).

    The best one to ask is Rick Borecky on the CMP forums. He is the real expert.
    You can also compare the cartouche to this one which is genuine on comment #6

      I don't think your SA GAW stamp is original, check the letters and top of the flame to known originals

      the photos of my SA GAW cartouches are original

      Rick Borecky has seen my stocks in person a few times over the past few years, they are original

    1956M1,
    I'm calling your cartouche fake. The lower loop on the S shouldn't be smaller than the top one.

      I'll agree with this. Plus, on a used stock the Cartouche is, in my mind, way too sharp. It also looks like it was burned into the wood. A common trick used to simulate aging the stamping. Both appear to have been done.
