31mike the forum LOVES photos.
Are you able to post any, even the after cleaning?
Donít scrub or sand the cartouche if you can avoid it.

While at south store last week I took a service grade to the counter to remove the stock. Without me saying a word one of the Armorers took one look at the stock and said if I wanted the rifle he would put another stock on it. He went on to say that to him the stock was a field grade stock. The major reason was that a chunk of wood was gouged out of the bottom of the stock next to the buttplate. The stock was beat to hell, black and sticky with grease but it had a sharp A stamped under the pistol grip which is an indicator of a USMC stock so to me it was great piece of wood. One man's trash is another man's treasure.
Where are you getting the idea that an "A" on the pistol grip is a USMC indicator for a stock?
I think that is more of a guess, then anything certain.
For example..... the "in-the-wrap" O-66 USMC rifle in auction doesn't have anything like that....???

Yes pictures would help this discussion!

The A is more likely a stamping put on by the Greeks then it is anything USMC related, LOL.

Does this mean Chesty tested each and every M1?

But he could have if he wanted to.
Maybe that’s where he disappeared to.
Goodnight Chesty, where ever you are!

What I like about my beater stock in my M1 is I never worry about dinging it up.With my reloads, it will do a 2" group at 100 yards.

You wanted a GI stock, you got it.
I have seen SG GI stocks with repairs?

I dont know what the USGI wood pile looks like these days but it must be getting small. Any NICE stocks will most likely end up on the CMP auction.

I know a few people who emailed about condition and had the problems resolved.
I had my fair share of problems with cmp products and they did not hesitate to correct them.

Default As is stock

Over the years I have only received/returned 1 broken stock ( hidden defect at left thin side over recieve ) I concider each rifle as a package of character and shoot them with pleasure. Each one turns heads at the range.
