    early no stock bolt stocks

    Both Rock Island and Springfield stocks without any stock bolts are very difficult to locate. If you do locate this type of stock, it will be on a rifle and not "loose". Original no bolt stocks were also inletted for the open bottom rear sight base too.

    So it would seem that I have a rifle that has a previous owners initials stamped into the receiver for whatever reason maybe match shooting or just personal rifle. Most parts seem to match for a M1903 built in 1910, well except maybe the stock.

    No inspector stamps on the stock just a few numbers at the top of the butt forward of the butt plate. Looks also like someone did some shimming at the forward trigger guard hole. S stamped at the nose. Any thoughts would be welcomed.

    Based on the large S on the foretip of the stock the stock was originally mounted on a Rock Island M1903 - 1913 or before.

    That's interesting and here I thought it was a Springfield stock. I was under the impression that Rock Island stocks used RI on the nose tip.

    They did ... when Rock Island started producing M1903s again, starting in 1917. Springfield used an 1/8" S on the foretip; Rock Island a 1/4" S.
