Default Looking for Westionhouse Mosin Nagant Info

I am trying to figure out if a certain stamp on some "supposed" Mosin
Westinghouse parts are in fact Westinghouse parts.
Just recently I bought a Westinghouse Mosin, I won't have it for a
couple of weeks or so. I want to add a sniper bolt, but not mess with
the original bolt, so I am replicating a Westinghouse bolt which I will
have modified to a sniper bolt. I have all the parts now to do this.

I have come across many parts that have a different stamp, but are
claimed to be Westinghouse parts. The first picture shows a stamp
of what I believe is Westinghouse. I have many parts now with the
same stamp. In the picture, the stamp is actually sideways. As is,
it looks like an "E" with an arrow on the left side. But if you cock your
head you can see it is a "W" with an arrow coming out the bottom.

In the 2nd picture you see another part, but the stamp is different.
SO the question is. What are these parts that are stamped with what
looks like a "B" with an arrow? Clearly these are "B"'s, right?
Are the "B" parts also Westinghouse? Any enlightenment would help,
unless it involves sending a check or money order to Freddies Info Palace.

The "<-E" stamp means it was made at New England Westinghouse East Springfield, Mass plant.

The "<-B" is a known subcontractor stamp for Westinghouse but the actual company name is not known.

I collect Military Arms and enjoy shooting in local matches. I also collect older Lever Actions, especially those chambered in odd/old cartridges. If you have a nice old Winchester or Marlin in 25-20, 32-40, 38-55, 40-60, 45-70, etc etc, please PM me and we can work out a deal.

NEW received the Mosin contract, but had no where to make them. They bought out the Stevens plant in May of 1915. When the Czar didn't pay up on the contract, the US government stepped in and bought the undelivered rifles. That still left NEW in a financial hole, so Savage jumped on the garage sale and purchase Stevens.
Now you know your Mosin was made by Stevens, and how Savage/Stevens came to be.

Hey! Stevens? Them is fight'in words. Yaknow you are going to Hell, Right?

Ah, Shucks ... the first gun I every shot was a Stevens ... Was Dad's, have
it still today.

Thanks for that REALLY deep insight. I have a Remington Mosin , thought
that a Westinghouse would be a great add-in.
