    Here is a photo of a M14 stock that Rick found - some kind of butt plate design they were testing?

                  Robert,
                  My apologies. I've been dealing with some medical issues here on my end, and have been very delayed in responding.

                  Here are the images that Robert (RCS) sent of me of Mr. Borecky's early T44 stock. Photo credits go to Mr. Rick Borecky.

                    That's cool. Yeah, they must've been experimenting with T44 specific butt plates, that is very unique not just your regular M1 Garand trapdoor butt plate routing.

                    Someone who has a lot of historical pics like IRON WORKER might have a pic of what belongs but I have never seen one like that, thanks for sharing.

                      Brian, thanks for posting Rick Borecky's photos of the M14 stock. The inletted butt is very close to the Model 1918A2 butt stock with the hinged flap. I have some photos of a early wood BAR stock that shows the inletting for the butt plate with flap. My guess is some like the BAR 1918A2 butt plate was being tested Click image for larger version

                            I also have a early T44 stock with the number in pencil inside the barrel channel B-8085. Got this many years ago. Bill Ricca had some aluminum M1 type butt plates but was not sure if they were on issue service rifles. My stock also has recess on the top screw hole for the butt plate, note my photo of the M14 stock on the left next to SA M1 stocks. Click image for larger version

                              Here are a pair of garand "style" buttplates for the M14. Notice the inverted dimples and the bend/line by the bottom screw hole
