    4 Rivet RMC and QRMC Hand Guards ? And other HG sightings....

    Seen Type III RMC and QRMC 4 rivet Hand guards ?
    Both had been modified at some time. But when? War time, post War ?

    See last 2 pictures: Do the M stamps look different to you ? They do to me. The V inside the M drops deeper on the RMC vs the QRMC stamp.



    RMC on left... QRMC on the right:



    Here you can just see the original cut, before it was cut further forward for the extra 2 rivets and longer tab. Before seeing these, I'd never gave any thought to 'Up Grading' Hand guards. Then after some thought, since they took the time to brass pin damaged ones, I guess these wouldn't be that unusual. What's that saying about busy hands vs idle hands ?



    Here, Compare the 2 M's:




    Added this XO'd-RMC, I believe was for QHMC (IIRC). Seems the M best resembles the M in the Q-RMC stamp:

    H&B style H stamps

    Cleaning out Photo bucket account.

    Noticed the H.I. stamped Hand guards have a H with the cross - in the middle.
    When compared to the Higher cross - on the H of the H.Q. stamp.





    FWIW

    Better View to Compare Q-RMC vs RMC

    These are both Type I.
    Better picture to compare the style/shape of the M.
