I remember seeing at least one at Ord during basic. Took AIT there as well and don't recall one then. One of those things that just sticks in your mind as a curiosity I suppose. It was not in my platoon, but we had at least one in the company. This was spring of 67. I don't know why I noticed it then, but the picture has stuck in my mind all these years. I also recall one wooden stock being broken-off at the pistol-grip from a horizontal butt stroke at bayonet training. Weak stock or strong kid...don't know which.
