Awhile back, I bought a few stocks at auction. Mainly because I needed one particular stock for my Eddystone.



For the most part Geladen has pretty much I.D.d the bulk of them. I do have one question on one that Bill I.D.d for me. It's the FN 1950. This particular one seems to be a M 24, Intermediate action. I know the 1950s were chambered for .30 cal. What would these M24s have been chambered for.

The FN model 1924 was sold around the world in different calibers. 7mm was widely sold in South America. 8mm was sold in Europe and also in large numbers to China. The ridged buttplate that wraps around the edge of the stock was used on a Columbian Contract, but those rifles were Model 1930 with the standard length receivers. The Belgium Congo received model 1924 rifles with a ridged buttplate, but I believe it was flat against the stock.
