1. Forend support is stamped "PME MONTY W VA". I'm guessing "MONTY W VA" is Montgomery, West Virgina. Any clue as to what PME stands for?
2. Also, I have a picture showing two marks, "P" and "O", which appear on the bottom face of the lower where the buttstock attaches. They flank either side of the aft screw hole. In this same general area the letters "GEG" are stamped. I know the significance of "GEG" but what's with the "P" and "O" marks?
3. Finally, to the side of the "S" manufacturer mark (Savage) which also appears on the lower, but on a different face, the number "3" appears. Could this represent the rebuild year, 1943?
I'd be happy to send the pic to someone if they'll send me their e-mail address. Thanks!

I'd appreciate any input as it is important to me that I understand as much of this gun's history as I can. Thanks!
