Great work guys! You delivered! This will be great! When I save up and get a nice wooden stock in the near future, I can look at this archiveand maybe either order the make I want or like Ham said, id the stock.

Thanks from XM25Ren

Thanks!

I think IronWorker and I did a pretty good job if I say so myself.

Thanks from IRON WORKER

Morning all,

Wanted to share this pic because it's somewhat at odds with the notion that TRW only used a non-serif "P" proof cartouche. This is off my stock, discussed on the main M14 forum, which consensus was that it is TRW/Overton, displaying all the contours one would expect. The serifed P is perhaps rare on an Overton/TRW but nevertheless, there it is. Just wanted to throw that into the mix.

Hey Dewayne,

If you have detailed pictures of the complete stock that would be great.

Please post pictures of the wrist(side view),comb(top&side), area just infront of the mag well, front swivel area. Also need to see the DoD cartouche showing the flat sides(both left&right).

There are 32 pictures present in the gunbroker auction. Looks to me to be an Overton due to the overall contour and especially the high arched DAS.

Unfortunately the pictures hammon posted were not definitive enough, many other areas still need to be examined. Without the "O" it will always be a question mark.

I am not convinced it is an Overton stock, yet.

DeWayne,

I already posted in your thread about the stock in question, and clearly stated it is an Overton stock. No ifs ands or butts! I can't explain why it has the serified "P" but it is an Overton.

I have replied to original thread that I missed somehow but to add my two cents
Springfield Armory also used the high arch DAS stamp ,I've had several .
Judging based on the norm its a TRW Overton

300,xx SA HIGH ARCH DAS
