Now to confuse the matter a little. My WW marked stock has the normal trigger guard inlet, while my Sacks marked stock has the Winchester style inlet like in the picture above.

Did all Overtons have the radiused upper handguard deck?

Type 1 (earliest) have the secondary trigger inlet like WRA above
Type 2 (late) were simplified only have single trigger inlet

There are some variations in Overton back porch areas ,most have the very distinct radius back porch and handguard deck

All TRW M14'S

Really nice pics! All the cartouches and stamping were sanded off long ago it seems. Definitely an H&R stock though. What do you mean by front handguard is radiused? What am I missing? (Probably a no duh moment....)

Left rear corner of the handgaurd deck (top surface of stock) most M14 stock makers left this square corner the TRW Overton stocks mostly have a very large radiused corner. And the inside of forend edges are also distinctly radiused.

HRA used two types of san serif (P) one is standard small uniform shape and the other has the wide flat (P) but is smaller than TRW
