I "rediscovered" this stock that had been wrapped up and sitting in my basement rafters for the last 25 years or so.
It's an "S" type stock with finger grooves and a straight wrist.
The fore end tip is marked with either an "8" or an "S".
The boxed-SPG cartouche is on the left stock wrist.
(It's a bit dry and could probably benefit from a very light application of Linseed oil.....)

Is this cartouche an arsenal re-build stamp ? If so, what era?
Or from it's original manufacture? If so, what era?

Thanks for any help.

SA SPG can either be on new manufacture or on a rebuild. But on this particular stock it is likely a rebuild.

After 1927 Springfield Armory did not build new manufacture service rifles. All service rifles after 1927 were technically a rebuild of a low number rifle that the receiver was replaced with a high number. So all service rifles after 1927 started life as a rebuild.

The only new manufactured rifles after 1927 were the rifles that were for DCM sales.
