I have several of these original stocks with nice clear stamps but I am not sure of the small wheel.Why are you needing the small wheel on the pistol grip?
Please educate me on what that is for?
Thanks
Jim

I’m also interested but not absolute in needing the small wheel punch. Let me know what you have after you answer the first inquiry. Thanks! stevewiley57@hotmail.com

Isn't it correct for the later EMcF stocks?

Default EMcFStock

I have a nice one too. Please educate me on my stock it does not have the ordnance stamp on the heel either. What do I say to a buyer about no stamp?
Thanks;
Charlie

He wants an EMcF stock for a 1943 rifle. Most 1943 EMcF's did not have the grip cannons. Grip cannons were used only on the scooped clip latch stocks, and these were mostly gone by March '43. The straight clip latch stocks started showing up around serial #1100000. Both straight and scooped were used between 1100000 and 1500000. The scooped cut outs had the grip cannons and the straight cut outs did not. EMcF stocks from 1500000 all had straight cut out and no grip cannons. Information from Rick B. 7-9-08

From the expert Rick B......

The other letters have been seen on the grips and the heel of the reciever area. EMcF period also has emblems like spade, hearts or triangles together or an hour glass possibly for example by the EMcF stamp but are rarer to see. It appears from all I have found that it was a short period for inspectors or maybe one unit did this for a reason. We will never know. Rick B

Great info, fascinating. So if I'm looking for a stock for Oct, 1942, then it would have the "grip wheel"? Would that then be a "scooped latch" stock? Thanks!
