Wwii Stock Markings
Posted 23 October 2004 - 09:07 AM
I've since removed that forearm and replaced it with one of Dan's oversized forearms since I had the barrel shortened. But to continue the military look of my Kahr I've added a 'P' in the same place as that on the original wood.
Now to continue dressing up my Tommy, I'd like to know if any of you WWII Tommy owners would describe any further markings that might be on the wood of you guns. Any cartouches or (especially interested in) any inspector initials visible on yours? Did the military place the same kinds of markings on Tommys as you find on Garands and carbines? Obviously the 'P' on mine is common to garands & carbines. Anything else?
I just want to finish putting the "trim" on my gun.
