I have 5 unmodified m/94 carbines dated 1917 in my survey. Interestingly enough, 4 of the five have unit disks marked A4 or A5.
I suppose the one without a disk in your survey is mine. It's s/n 90,089. It's in better condition than the one posted by the Op. Except it has had the V notch deepened although that modification is hardly noticeable. Wow, I never thought the value would go this high & I'm glad I bought it when I did.
Regards

Serial number is 90089, initials are HK, Model 94 (never had an extension), 1917, no disk, and I think the wood is elm. The stock is a tight straight grained wood with no figuring anywhere. I've attached a picture of the stock.

I've not noticed until I posted the picture of the bottom of the butt stock but there is a little figuring in the wood at the toe.
The pictures are from the auction site. I've got a new computer with Windows 10 and some of my files either haven't made the transition from 7 or won't transfer properly.

I looked for a long time to find one without ever having the barrel extension and in nice condition. When I bought it there was a tread on here about the auction but I've been unable to find it. I think the consensus then was that it was an elm stock. That's what I was going by when I described it. I doubt that I will find a 94-14 in the same condition for under a thousand in today's market.
