Need some help deciphering this one.  The stock is a Type 2 with what appears to be an NPM cartouche.


Here is the sling cut.  With a quick glance it looks like "IR" with smoking bomb at the top.  A closer look shows a faint "TRIMBLE" and that the "A" has overstamped the "TN".  "SG" at the bottom with possibly a partial "R".


If all  the stamps are legit, how does it end up with this combination?

CCNL 327 shows markings for a NPM stock transferred to SG, it is marked the same way in the sling well but it has a SG cartouche on the right side. Maybe your stock was marked SG and never transferred or transferred back to NPM. Your NPM cartouche looks real enough to me and I swear I remember seeing one marked just like yours for sale at whatacountry a couple years ago.

Looks like Trimble over TN and then the markings for Saginaw...RSG and then letters and numbers.

Found a few sling well pictures here.

Found a few other examples but they had the last four of the serial number stamped making things hard to read.

How about a close up of the boxed NPM over FJA? Tia.

I think it's safe to say there were odd things going on between these two companies as far as wood went. Remember the handguards that had both RSG and TN stamps on them? If that's a fake NPM cartouche then the fakers have made a leap forward in duplication of the originals.
