    SA SPG stock rebuild

    Sometimes more time was spent on the butt plate conversion on the early stocks. This SPG stock was converted to
    have the two equal sized holes. The large hole was sleeved (wood) and the small hole bored out. Other early stocks
    (including some Winchesters) only have minor work performed to use the trap door butt plate

    Oh my, I've never seen a modified stock like this. As you said Robert, sometimes very little was done. Well most I've seen look very well done, this one looks a lot rougher then the others I seen. But then again I haven't seen anywhere close to the amount of early wood you have, so I'll gladly step back and soak in your knowledge of these. Is there a story behind this stock? If you've seen others like this, did it lead you to believe these are early or later rebuilds?

      , I have seen a few other conversions with a sleeve, but the restorations also include using a sleeve to make them back to the large over small hole. they plug-up the holes with
      solid dowels and bore them to look like large over small hole stocks. I only have four rifles with the SA SPG stocks with two equal sized holes, these I would consider these rare because of
      the short production period of some months during 1940.

      Photo show a "quick" conversion to trap door butt plate on a SA SPG stock. Note the line used to outline the area to be routed out (there are different variations of the modification)
      Also note the poor fit of the butt plate at the toe of the stock. This rebuild is without any rebuild stamps
