Great Work! What Stencils did you use?

Thank you!  I made it myself with notebook paper and my kershaw.  I'm not totally satisfied, but it will work for now.....

Good work,

If I have the option, I always try to buy stocks with rack numbers over ones not marked for my builds. Boywonder can testify to this fact

Yeah well Hippy - I heard about a weiner dog that killed a german shepherd!

(got caught in his throat )

Very nice build OP!  Memorial builds are fun to do.  My 604 was because my dad served in VN in the AF so congrats and great work.
Link Posted: 4/30/2015 11:32:06 PM EDT
Both of mine were standard dachshunds, 30 lbs +. One got up to 38 lbs, not really fat either.

Anyway, I like the rack number tribute, that's what I originally came here to say.  The old school pics of those guys with the cigarettes hanging and that attitude. Don't get much better.

I had to quit, and don't regret it a bit though.

I can tell you what stencil NOT to use, do not get the 2 inch ones at Walmart and they are way too bug for a 3 number

the selection at the usualt craft places are mostly lower case letters and the numbers are funky , I'm still looking

I've still got my dad's old USMC stencils in the garage.  I'll have to pull them out and see what they can do for a rack number on my old SP1.

For those who are familiar with the rack numbers, how would they have done a rack number on a CAR-15 or an XM-177?

While there's probably a regulation stating how they're supposed to be applied, in practice I think anything goes. Not specific to XMs, but I've seen dog tags stamped with numbers and then fastened to sling swivels or lanyard rings on pistols, and also some Dymo labels glued on to stocks. I also found some Colt N1 stocks at a gun show which had rack numbers written with paint markers.

This is a bad pic, but I used 2" from Wallyworld on one stock. Some stocks I've seen had large numbers. I have some that the rack numbers were hand painted on.

I've also seen a few with Dymo labels so I bought an old Dymo label maker from ebay to play with.

That's cool.

I got carried away when I built my 603.

Stocks with rack numbers are similar to police surplus handguns with the department number stamped on them.  I have several. My favorite is my 3.5" Austin PD marked S&W Model 27.
I also have a Los Angeles County Sheriffs Department model S&W model 15.

It is just cool to have firearms that exhibit some history.

Nothing like having a stock with old rack numbers.

That Model 27 is a Sex Machine!

When I was made my unit armorer, we just used paint markers. Granted we were just marking the stocks on our M4s. We still had about a cage (10-20 rifles) of M16A2s that we hadn't turned over yet to proper authority and just got used when needed on rare occasions. Or got taken out of the rack when a disgruntled 19K being made to be armorer instead of playing on his MGS needed to have his spirits uplifted. They also had the old school stencil markings on them

Op, your making your grandad proud!
