Im thinking the BWco could be Borg Warner not a expert though. Nice early Winchester,was hoping to get one on my trip to the south store but they didn't have any.

I have a M17 with a US in a shield just like that.
Have no idea what it means. I always thought it was placed there by an aftermarket seller when rifles were mail order or something like that.
Maybe someone could say for sure or provide more info.
It's located in the same area on the stock underside.

What marking, if any, appears on the fore end tip of the stock? Is it an "E", "R", or "W", or something else? Please advise.

Thanks!

As you may recognize, your rifle's stock was made by Eddystone and is a replacement. I have seen the shield on Eddystone stocks.
