Story I heard about those is, they pulled them off 99.5% of the first SA production run after a few caught on fire in full auto fire.

They tossed them in the trash and a worker took them home to burn. Some collector got wind and managed to get the last handfull the guy had not burnt up.

The Springfield Armory museum still has a few T44E4 and early M14s with wood handguards.
