Default Overton Stock Marking

Does anyone have a picture of the O that might be stamped on the butt of an Overton stock?

M14 Overton stocks are stamped O under butt plate area, maybe that's what he is thinking of?

No. I am trying to find out if anyone recognizes the O on the butt. I am unfamiliar with Overton markings, M14 or otherwise.

Post pictures of both the sides, the top and the grip area of the stock and you may be able to get an identification.

This^^^ Overton "looks" like a WRA in the trigger house inlet sometimes but there are other "tells" to differentiate....

FWIW, I have a T44E4 stock that is marked with an "O" in the same area as the OP's. It has a DAS, proof P and a S/N written in the barrel channel in what looks like silver pencil.

That is interesting as this is the typical way SA M14 stocks were marked ,love to see a picture of your SA stock showing the (O)
