    Does this M1 Garand stock cartouche look real? 1941 SA GHS

    This is on an early 6 digit serial number receiver with it's original 1941 barrel, and it's a long channel stock. Link to more images Imgur: The magic of the Internet

    SA GHS Cartouche

    Not a lot to work with in identification, best to contact Rick boreckyicon for a positive answer.


    Here is a photo from from my SA 216K serial number range

    Its not a good one. The A is to small and shifted tot eh left. The lower S is horrible on the bottom also. If you notice the period after the "A" it is sitting out int eh open because there is to much space from the box to the small "A". Hope this helps. Rick Bicon

    Thank you all for your input. Rick Bicon makes a lot of good points and I think he is right, as much as it pains me to hear. It's been an incredibly frustrating journey trying to find a Garandicon.

    Not so hard to find one just hard to find an original one. LL rifles seem to be about it.

    The SA GHS cartouched stocks were very difficult to find in the 1990's and even more difficult now. I would guess more SA GHS cartouched stocks were
    faked than any other cartouche with SA SPG and WRA GHD next in line. Also worn SA GHS stocks without any visible cartouche were used by converting
    them to take the no trap solid butt plate for mid to late 1940 restorations.

    A rifle from the original 38K Lend Lease period without any Britishicon proofs and same condition is worth more than a Lend Lease rifle

    The cannons are also to small to be large and to big to be small. Rick Bicon

    Highly unlikely anybody could fake the aging of both stamps to look the same age.
    Spelling and Grammar count!
