    Hand Stamped JLG Cartouche

    Were handstamped JLG stocks only used on rebuilt rifles, or were they used on new production as well?

    I'm no expert, but I think they could have been used on either. I had originally posted that Springfield wasn't manufacturing new m1's in the early 50s but in fact they were and where the JLG cartouche was used from July of 1950 through September of 1953, I would imagine that cartouche would have been used on new rifles and rebuilds possibly. If I'm wrong someone will correct me shortly.hth. the literature says that new Springfield rifles and rebuilt rifles both occurred during his tenure

    Canfield article said the SA/JLG ceased once the new m1 production started,so I guess they are only on rebuilds after all

    Remember, I'm no expert. I'm guessing the Canfield article this was mentioned in is still up-to-date current information because sometimes as time goes on, things that were printed in earlier editions of articles and books gets updated with new found information. That's why there are several editions of war baby, to correct all the errors in the previous editions. I hope I told you the most current information. I only answered you because I noticed none of the usual experts were.

    I appreciate the help
    There doesn't seem to be a lot of info on the handstamp JLG out there. GCAicon Journal 29-1 has some info on post war cartouche, I'm going to try and get a copy of that. Again I want to thank you for the help.

    From the article "Post-War Cartouches" by Kenny Williamson
    Springfield Armory:
    Springfield Armory inspectors used four main Government acceptance cartouches during the Post-War period: the SA/SHM cartouche accompanied by a single Ordnance wheel, the SA/JLG cartouche, also accompanied by a single Ordnance wheel, the single Ordnance wheel alone and the ˝” DAS alone.
    Following the beginning of the Korean War in 1950, the Springfield line was fired back up for full production. These 4.2 million and early 4.3 million serialed rifles were cartouched with the SA/JLG and Ordnance wheel stamps. The letters JLG on the earliest cartouches were hand-stamped, presumably until the complete stamp was made.
    [Insert KW02 JLG Hand Stamp with caption It is obvious that the JLG has been added by hand. Photo courtesy of Rick boreckyicon]
    Sometime around the late summer of 1953, just prior to the adoption of the Defense Acceptance Stamp, the SA/JLG cartouche was dropped and the Ordnance wheel alone was used
    Real men measure once and cut.
