I just picked up a stock I was hoping I could get some information on.  It appears to be an un-issued high wood for a S'G' or later IP.  It's marked RSG in the sling well, has an internal ink stamp but no cartouche at all.  It does not appear to have ever been sanded or oiled.  The included recoil plate is a type 2 marked IP-W and it has a PM-IP butt plate.  A couple of photos are attached.  I know there are a lot of fakes out there and hope I didn't get burned too bad.  Your comments would be appreciated.  Thanks, George

Hi George, welcome to the forum. Any chance you could post a picture looking down at the recoil plate area?

It appears to have had the forearm taped to it at one time. Any marks on it?

I'd be happy to post another picture, but it would have to be next week as I'm out of town. There is some old hardened tape residue on the front that looks like it may have held a hand guard on at one time. The only markings are the RSG and an ink stamp in the channel. It looks like the last 3 digits are 320. There seems to be another in front but its totally illegible.

The PM-IP seems a bit suspicious on the butt plate, think some of those came from the west coast but hope not.

I wish I took a photo of the butt plate. If it helps, the checkering pattern is the same as that in Craig Riesch's book. It also looks a little shop worn with a few hints of rust here and there.
