OK, 0 above 6 on the heel, what appears to be a 4 in the sling cutout (the 4 has a short 'leg'), nothing in the oiler slot - the upper is not original, since it's a different colour (light wood). Is that any good fer you?

Unfortunatley not OGG....:-(...on the slope of the sling well will be a 1,2,3 or 4 Letter code..like Q-RMC or OI..or TN or BNP or W.......on the oiler side of the stock there should be even feintly a cartouche like a pinwheel or in a square box a 6 digit code like UEF over RIA....on the flat of each side of the top hadguard..is this 2 or 4 rivet ?......will be a the same set of maker codes....?

Sorry Lloyd, but that's all the markings :( Is there a possibility that it could be one produced by another nation? When I got it, it was covered in a Chocolate Brown Paint.

OGG..are you sure the "4" isnt the remains of an A...as there is a maker code for stocks OA and RA-O...should have a P proof on the heel.Yes plenty of post war or aftermarket stocks made by foreign armies..:-(

I need to hold it in my hand to check it out for originality Ogg..... :shock:

Sorry to give you this, but it looks as if it was never an A, both sides are vertical. It looks as if it was made using upside down Tees
