Default M1903 Mark I Cartouche

Curious to know what folks can tell me about this cartouche. It's on a M1903 Mark I (stock has the cutout for the ejection port). Also, there is no proof mark that I can find. At first I thought it might be a CMP replacement stock, but it doesn't look very new and most of the CMP cartouches I've seen are block, not script. SN is 1080287. Barrel is marked SA 9-18, so is should be about right for the receiver.

Its a new CMP replacement stock (Boyd's). I just bought one last week.

Someone else has created the secret cartouche aging compound that I keep in a Kiwi black shoe polish can.

Did the seller tell you anything about the recent history of the rifle? I think this sort of thing will become a more reoccurring issue in the near future.

Thanks JPM. Try this link:

I imagine the cutout would have been done. This is a piece I bought on GB, having been told it was much closer to 'original' than it it really is, particularly based on the stock (stamped Boyd's on the inside).

A little false patina? Too bad the seller wasn't more honest. Just for fun it might be entertaining to ask him how old the stock is.

Yes, he told me it was in 95-98% condition and 'booked for $3,500". While I did not believe that, I did think it was a decent piece until I realized what was missing /wrong...the stock being the biggest one (barrel, received, and trigger, and sear are correct).
