Just curious as to what time period Tula used the hammer as a stock cartouche. I have a M24 Finn with this stamping and recently picked up an SA marked 1942 Izhevsk 91/30 with the hammer cartouche on the stock as well. I'm sure the stock on the 1942 rifle is older that the rifle and likely came from a dragoon. Anyone know when this marking was applied to stocks?

It was used up to 1926 Mike.

There's a roundel cartouche with a small hammer inside it at the top center between the two circles. Then there's the "plain" hammer that I think has a date under it. I would think the transition between them would have been around 1918, but that's just a guess. Wouldn't the plain hammer have been replaced with the star (over a date) in 1928 when the metal marks changed?

Thanks for the info guys. Both of mine are just plain hammers with no circles around them and no dates either.

As far as a I have seen there is no date under the hammer. Yes the 5 pointed dated start replaced it in 28.
