Hey guys-

I got my CMP garands and want to put the original cartouches on the stock (The SA and the bomb). Does anyone know who provides this service or loans/sales the stamps?

(ps. im not looking to pass the rifles off as originals, i just want to make my personal rifles looks more original, both 1943 makes :-) )

There is no such cartouche or marking on any Garand. Reproduction (fake) cartouches are frauds.

Wrong, Garands came with different cartouches on their stocks by production date and make.

There is nothing wrong with taking a reproduction stock, and putting the correct stamps on it for a personal collection. That is why I stated in my first post that this was not being done to resell the guns as collectors grade garands.

All reports are he is top notch. He is a wood refinsher and does supurb work. So much so, that some purist hate him since his restamped stocks are very hard to tell from the orginals. Plus all of his stamps are true originals that he has accumulated over the years. These are ones that made it out of Winchester, SA, IHC, ect.... None are repros.

He will only stamp say a SA with the proper SA stamps and not convert them into say a Win. stock. So he does try to keep a handle on those that try to profit from his services via ebay and other places....

Please permanantly mark the stock on the inside. It's almost inevitible that it will eventually sold as original otherwise.

I've never met a dealer at a gunshow selling stocks with repro stamps. Only hump artists charging real deal prices and being evasive about where the stamps came from.

FWIW, I bought a Boyd's stock at the Reno show. It wasn't marked.

Actually the CMPs are not Boyd's. So they will not be marked other than with the CMP logo.

The Boyd's stocks are easy to identify as the angle on the bottom pistol grip is quite different from original garand stocks.

EB,

If you got one of the new CMP stocks, were you aware there is a 1/2X1/2" CMP stamp right where the original cartouches would go.

It looks just like (well close enough for government work) the original DAS stamp. Think the eagle with the 3 arrows with the letters CMP at the bottom.

That's the truth. It took me quite a bit of work to get the Boyd's wood slimmed down. The grip angle is tough to fix--you cannot remove too much wood to better define the grip/comb without cutting into the buttstock cavities. Now that I look at it, I could have done some work up in front of the mag well...

Here's how it ended up:

The CMP stocks ARE boyds..... they are sent to Dupage to be slimmed down and they also stamp the CMP cartouch THEN they are shipped to the CMP for sales.

CMP does have a few that are not stamped for people who do not want the stamped ones.
