Default A little help finding stock variations

Can anyone bump the thread or have the link to the webstite that has a visual representation of the slight changes to the 1903's stock over the years. For the life of me I cannot find it here or through a google search.

Thanks Rick, that is one pic I have come across. The one I am thinking about is from someone's book that shows the slight changes year to year. It is a 2 page illustration...

Rick, are you also the same RtL on m1903.com?

I came across a National Ordnance post you answered on and I think that same guy is trying to sell the rifle for almost 3x what you quoted the value.

With GG's - We all know when those came along

C-stock - adopted late '28

Without GG's - early-mid '42 (Rem '03)

Scant - First used on A4's in fall of '43

Pretty sure I'm close on all that.

From Jesse Harrison's M1903 book. Keep in mind the "Type" designations are his own invention and had no official basis.
