Default Earliest known use of the non-gg RLB stock on Remington 1903s?

Particularly interested in whether any pre-1942 Remington 1903s have been found with a non-gg RLB stock. Thanks for your help!

I believe all the 1941 Remingtons had GG stocks. IIRC (and John Beard can probably correct me), the first non-GG stocks didn't appear until @ 3,018,000 or so, which would have been 1942.

I concur with RtL, with one caveat. It's entirely possible that a Remington 1941 receiver could have gotten held over for re-work and not assembled until 1942. Stranger things have happened.

Also a clarification ... I've seen grasping groove stocks on Remington M1903s well into the 3,040,000 range and I believe JB said he found one in the 3,100,000 range with the correct "spread" R L B stamp.

As with most changes on Remington M1903s, there was not a black/white date for change-overs to new features.
