Does anyone have any info on this stock? These are the only two markings on the stock. ImageUploadedByFirearms Talk1452292125.515935.jpgImageUploadedByFirearms Talk1452292139.034185.jpgImageUploadedByFirearms Talk1452292152.069639.jpgImageUploadedByFirearms Talk1452292163.587342.jpg

Inland (Division of General Motors) stock cartouche. Original I do believe- there are fake stamps out there, but that one has the points of the real one.

Translation- you got a Chevy!

Awesome thanks! Do you think it hurts the value that part of the one cannon was not fully stamped?

Doubtful- and I cannot tell from the pics- but sanding might drop the value some.

BTW- points to look for on original- cannon barrels should not taper, trunnions should not touch other cannon, belt tip should taper to one side.

I have an inland receiver. Before I put it together do you suggest I put oil on the stock, if so what kind?

Thanks for the info Shooter!

After talking with the person I got it from he said this was purchased at riverbank armory from the guy he bought it from.

The standard finish for US military wooden stocks has been boiled linseed oil. There is a version sold under the name Lin-Speed Oil, which is linseed oil and a solvent to speed up the drying.

Follow directions with the product you buy, and do NOT leave laying about the rags or paper towels you used to wipe down the surplus. Linseed oil reacts with atmospheric oxygen, generates heat, and will set rags on fire when you REALLY did not expect that!

c3shooter's comments are spot on. Both the hand guard and stock are Inland. It doesn't look to me that the stock has been sanded. Just the cartouche lightly struck. f it were mine I wouldn't do a thing to it.
