Default SPG Stocks

Hey guys,

Can someone here shed light on the SPG stamped "rebuild" stocks in the 50's?
Did they re stamp the stocks with SPG during the rebuild process? Or am I missing something here?

S/N 81-3,888,081. Rebuild program. December 1947-June 1950
S. A. / S.P.G. (Springfield Armory / Stanley P. Gibbs). S/N 1 WAS NOT REBUILT. IT IS IN THE SPRINGFIELD ARMORY MUSEUM. Other stamps used on the stocks were the circled 'P' proof mark (with serifs) on the pistol grip, and the Ordnance Wheel with Crossed Cannons. The wheel was .437" in diameter.

Early gas trap era SPG cartouche had tall thin letters in an almost square box which changed to slightly different letters and a round corner box before the war. post war SPG rebuild had fat letters in a round corner box. Photos could explain it better.

Some WW2 cartouches were also used on rebuilds, SA GAW was used a lot

Thanks.

Did they stamp any stock coming through the door regardless of what their original cartouche was? Ex you could have a sanded cartouche and a spg stamped next to it?

If you are referring to during the rebuild process, yes. You could have a WWII Winchester stock that was sanded and reused that now wears a Rebuild cartouche...
