Default Question on FAT/SA stock.

You guys have seen this stock before, stamped FAT 82 on right side and FAT 70 on left, with the crazy repair on the left side of the stock,M2, which I'm sure came from an 8mm German round during the battle of Bastogne, on Christmas day, held by an Italian turn coat who came to tell the G.I.'s the Germans were coming.

My reason for this note, other to lighten up the forum, is the other markings. This stock came with my RG Rock-Ola. I had a good looking Rock stock and hand guard, so a switch was made. This stock is just sitting in the corner.
It's stamped "S-A" on both the stock and hand guard. Springfield Armory, I've read made replacement stocks for the carbines later in or after the war. Question, is there one maker, in particular, that they made the stocks for?? Is the stock correct for ANY carbine or more so for one maker?
Just wanted to know, my inquiring mind has to know.

J.R.

At least you know who made yours JR, I got a spare FAT 66 with a small rectangular box, longways going from side to side in the slingwell I can't make out, even under magnification. Mine also has a couple of those dowel repairs but, they're all single dowels.

E-7,
Do you know when the "FAT" deal started? The "70" stamp is the earliest I've seen. When did the first of the carbines get to the Italians?
