I am guessing at least a 1000 of them!



I believe this is from a newsletter but cannot locate issue number.

Underside of butt plate on SCB stocks



Also noticed BR-B stocks have 3 holes underneath the butt plate, but no numbers like SCB

This B.L.C. stamp is on the barrel of my Inland 744,107. In 2008, this stamping was the subject of a Spotters Report published in CCNL 350, and was authenticated by Ron Wellman, a Technical Editor for the club at the time. I heard years ago that the club had knowledge on one other barrel with this stamp.

Is yours double marked with the two different styles of SI like the one in the original post?
"Both the earlier individually-stamped S and I and the combined SI stamp can be found, but this is the first report of both stamps on the same band."

Marcus Rust reports another double stamped S I over  SI found on an online auction site.
I have observed a few double stamped since this was published
Interesting is that the S looks upside down in all cases.

 Don’t know if this is unusual to anyone else, but is unusual to me.

Not sure if this was a Rock-ola to UEF or a UEF to Rock-ola.

It looks legit to me.  Anyone else seen same or similar?

Dan,

I just picked it up...but I think you will be my first stop on anything unusual UEF-wise if I ever move it along.

I found an extractor which had a similar small overstamp. Turns out that is correct for a very early Rockola spring tube and I quoted a guy a price of $85 for it about 7 years ago. The buyer was very happy to get it. Very rare in the case of the extractor.

I purely took his word for it and assumed it was so early of a transfer that it was limited to the earliest. So, there is room for error in that assumption.

checking COMs there were several springtube RO carbines, all reported as having an R sear.

Authorization for a transfer of sears from Underwood to Rock-Ola was approved in September 1943.
Then again that is the only know transfer of sears between the two

On the extractor portion of the discussion, it wasn't an Underwood piece, but I never bothered to check WB until now for transfer info. It's not listed as a transfer. So the info must be on a COM layout, a newsletter or just between knowing collectors.

The sear isn't an early transfer, and I see it's listed in WB.
