Pistol grip mark ???
I have had this stock for a few years. I purchased it from either Dupage or a forum member. I was looking through some of my excess Garand stocks to find one to put on the Garand I typically take to the range to replace the DAS stock that is currently on it.

I never noticed this stamped marking on the bottom of the pistol grip. I have been searching but I canít find anything on this. Maybe itís nothing but any information would be appreciated. Iíve also added a few pictures of the stock that may help.

Thank You for any information

Looks like a heavily stamped "flaming bomb" stamp.

Could it be a rack number “8”?

I only looked at the first pic - looking at the second picture, I think you've got it right.

Another difference
Another thing thing I noticed on this stock is the holes in the but stock for the cleaning supplies are tapered instead of the straight cut with ridges. The barrel channel is 1.75 and the clip latch relief is cut differently than the stocks I compared it to. It is at a slight angle and is definitely not straight cut as compared to the 7 stocks that I have out that Iím trying to decide what to do with.
