Walnut Big Red pattern stock:









Under buttplate, S.A. no drawing number



Small sans serif P in circle



No DAS

Glass bedded 2x, first bedding a bronze metallic color, later skim bedded with a translucent yellowish tan material









Heavily worn handpainted camo, green and black, similar pattern as seen on the XM21 in the West Point Museum ex- Viet Nam with 1st Cav Div

Mystery relief cuts in wood at left side of receiver near scope mount hole and bolt release cutout, as seen on an M21 in a museum in Australia... AN/PVS-2 mount?





Not epoxy impregnated as far as I can tell

No serial number visible in the barrel channel

I believe this to be an M21 stock, possibly later production or replacement, hence no DAS or epoxy impreg

Strip of fiberglass packing tape on butt with handwritten note in ball point pen, barely legible, says "FINISH ***INED PAINT" Possibly a repair tag from the armory?


Thanks from XM25Ren

Here are 3 stocks I have that I can't pinpoint the makers. First picture is all three, and details will be added in the order of top to bottom.



Stock 1, blotchy birch

Could you lift the butt plate and the door, and take a picture of the storage holes. do not remove the butt plate .

A picture of the front sling swivell; and the trigger housing area, would be a big help;;;

Right now I'm going with all 3 as HHR.

Chief, on the buttplates, I looked and they all are in perfect alignment. And I can describe the trigger guard areas. Blotchy and Salty have visible flats that form an A shape that goes back to the beginning of the inlets, and in the case of Blotchy, completely around behind the inlet. Oddball is more rounded off. All inlets are the single inlet style. I'll take some more pictures of these areas tomorrow and post them. I'll add them to my postings above.

I am leaning towards Overton on Old Salty, but I may be wrong.

All three have usual characteristics of Overton (TRW) stocks , and may or may not have the (O) under the buttplate. All three have high arch DAS and wide san serif (P) . I've only seen the high arch DAS on SA and TRW.
The wide san serif (P) I've seen on HRA, H.SACHS ,andTRW.

Thanks from Circlehook

Than I would say the Salty and Blotchy are than Overtons.You say that the storage line up; has the top hole in the metal been drilled out; mine is all chewed up from the drill bit to get it to line up with the storage hole.

IW, That old beat up Salty stock actually has a sarif P stamp. It's hard to see in the picture but it's there. In fact it's the only stock I own that has the sarif P.

Chief, none of the my buttplates have been altered.

Probably SA then since it has high arch DAS.
