Amusing
I got about halfway through. 
His comment about making their way to the trenches reminded me of the story of a visitor to a battlefield.  The visitor supposedly says something to the effect of "Isn't a good thing this park was here so they would have a place for the battle."
I've heard some comments pretty close to that so I can beleive it happened.

A few months ago I ran across a needed round Winchester bolt on eBay for a very fair price. The seller  stated that it was stamped with a "W". The pictures were crappy so I couldn't tell for sure, but I bought it. Turns out the stamped "W" was actually a paint stamped "M" and the bolt was a post-war replacement. I asked for a refund and it was granted. But the prique turned around a relisted it as a Winchester bolt and sold it to someone who didn't know better. 
  The pictures tell it all-

Anyone can post a funny! Anyone?

Here is a S-A marked in the slingwell!
Look how crisp the this baby is with that CC, hardly any signs of sanding! Clown
It would seem Springfield was not getting enough credit for their stocks because collectors could not find the marking in the slingwell, so to boost their street credibility, for future collectors, then started marking the slinwell as well, just like a real WW2 stock should!


In fairness to the seller he states he "restores" stocks and that he added the Springfield stamps.

Good point Floyd Thumbs Up
I wasn't thinking about JB. But I have seen a type tinted while mixing that can be hard to spot.

More I look at it...
It almost appears it could have been a .U. stamp they tried to remove (?)
