Default BAWL information

Any chance someone can enlighten me when BAWL (no dash, no periods, no box) might have been used? Also what did Benicia rebuilds entail? I have a new to me 1908 that appears substantially original, but has a faded BAWL mark on an early stock. Search function for old posts is confusing me a bit😬. I did look up the arsenal and saw the post about who “WL” is - but what time period to the above cartouche?

Thanks for any help!!

I can't answer your specific question re: "when", but BA has been around a long time.

Thanks for the replies, sirs. This one is BAWL with no dash or periods. I’m still searching for any information on their inspectors. I can’t seem to locate the post again that states who “WL” was….
