1903 C stock question
 
I'm looking at a 1903 C stock marked in a way that I have never seen.

It is a well made stock. It has two cross bolts. No grasping grooves. It has no markings on the left side. On the right side, near the rear cross bolt, is a deeply struck large ordnance wheel.

None of my reference books cover a stock marked like this. Has anybody seen a stock marked like this? There can't be only one of them out there. Thanks for the help in advance.

No.

p.s.,

If a faker invests good money in a stamp, then one can rest assured that he intends to use it more than once.

"Deeply struck", "right side". These lean towards a fake.stamp. Photos would tell.

Sounds fake to me, as well.

I have an M-1 carbine stock stamped in that way.

What would possess a “faker”, after having spent whatever money to acquire a stamp, to use said stamp in such an obviously unusual location? Interesting.

Some people know just enough to be dangerous or destructive.

Hi Jim F.

May I ask you how you have come up with your staunch reply?
What is your evidence it's correct?

My limited understanding any govt regulations, state all manufactures & overhaul stations MUST mark their product in a certain place.
Especially with American firearms, so time is not being wasted looking all over the stock, to see if the firearm is correct in all respects & safe to shoot.

Many of us have seen "humped" firearms with wrong stamps to just boost the price to the unknowing buyer
A guy at a gun show tried to sell me a worn SKS with bring back papers.
He said he brought back from NAM. It had a early WW-2 TULA marking on the stock but it was a Chinese SKS!
It had a # of odd markings on it. I checked under the barrel under the cleaning rod there was a marking from Century arms. He wanted $200 over the going price for a SKS at that time for this fraud. I had him banned from the show!

Thanks in advance for you reply,
broom

I thought M1 Carbines were suppose to have stamp on right side and M1 Garand and 03/A3 was on the left?
