    I looked my serial number up and it was dated to 1949. I took my butt plate off to check for the troop tag and found the date was stamped into the wood. Mine is November 1949.

    Don’t forget wood stamp can be months prior to final mfg date
    I recall my wood was dated the year before my mfg date.
    No troop tag :(

    You check for a troop tag under the butt plate?

    I believe my stock was dated 4 years prior to my rifles serial number, rifle sn# dates it to 1946, stock is stamped III 42. Believe it to be the correct stock because it is stamped with the rifles sn# in the barrel channel And all other found #s are matching. Matching troop tag also.
