Huh?Cant exactly answer that, but i have a M-38 dated 1942 which came in a Laminated M-44 Stock and i always wondered if that was the original stock, since they did start using the M-44 laminate stocks as of 1942!
I think that the late 1941s or early 1942 may be where you begin see the transition. My 41 came with the screw in liners, but that came from Finland. Most Finn captured M38s I have seen are 1941s and most again have the screw in liners. PAshutr3 just grabbed one that is 1941 and has a screw in front and empty in the rear. There ya go for transition.
