That's one Bad @$$ silhouette you got there my friend, enough to frighten the bad guy, with or without ammo.

Thanks from XM25Ren

Some nice gov't diagrams, and did you notice the yoke on the 2nd type stabilizer and how it seems to widen on the rear half?

Yes Sir, I saw that. Yet another variation to a very complex part.

Judging by the date on the picture it has to be a prototype and not a production part.

Here are 3 examples of the forward E2 grip assy., the first from Do-Well mfg. the middle one made by Ray Kryza of SE Mich. sometime in the 70s and the one on the right is embossed with the name NE Inc. Ray's is obviously a reproduction.
The other shot is of an E2 stock liner and screws, the counter sunk flat head screw is correct with the liner w/ star washers and the other 2 screws I'm told were used without the liner on the early S.A. walnut E2 stocks.

Thanks Phinehas for the added info! Mr.Ray Kryza did good work but did not come close to the real article. I believe the same is true for the stabilizers in question, he did a quality reproduction but it is still easily recognized from the original.

I know that the third generation stabilizers that we possess are the real deal and legit.

Thanks for making this a better thread.

Thanks from Phinehas

In this post are 3 examples of at least 5 known USGI butt plate assemblies and one aftermarket plate. Can you pick out the fake plate?

Two of these are USGI E2 rubber butt pads but the one in the middle is a reproduction. Notice the difference in width on the top portion that fits between the hinges of the folding plate.
The underside shows the real difference between the fake and genuine article.
On the left the maker is ARGO DEV. CORP. and on the right the mfg. is N.E. Inc.

I've also included a pic of the correct USGI screws.

In the first picture, the one on the bottom right is the fake, final answer!

Phinehas the fake is the one with the three holes that are drilled using the same size drill bit.

You did not stamp that butt plate in your garage, it was in the shop!
