Rick B. found this stock which is a single bolt and had the front screw hole relocated. Cartouche long gone but a very interesting butt plate with top tang stamping : H over 8 over 18 I was told by a collector that this is Troop H, 8th Cavalry, Trooper 18.

Have of the Springfield 1903 collectors found ownership stamps on any of the butt plates or stocks (the USN does mark stocks) ?

Also found out the 8th Cavalry H troop went to Mexico in 1916, on the Punitive Expedition

I think it was Troop H, 8th Cav, rifle rack number 18.... And Yes the Navy did put rack numbers on there's as well.

Don't forget that buttplates are subject to the laws of animal husbandry.
