OKAY, SO SUNDAY I DECIDED TO FIELD STRIP AND DETAIL MY GARAND. NO BIG DEAL. RIGHT? THEN I CLEANED MY STOCK DOWN WITH DENATURED ALCOHAL AND BEGAN TO RUB IT DOWN WITH LINSEED OIL. OKAY, EVERYTHING IS COOL UP TO THIS POINT. WELL THE STOCK IS ORIGINAL 1943 AS I START TO ADMIRE IT I NOTICE SOME OF THE DINGS AND SCRATCHES START TO LOOK LIKE LETTERS, INITIALS ACTUALLY. SO I CALL MY SON OVER TO LOOK AT IT AND HE SEES THE MARKS AND SAYS THEY KIND OF LOOK LIKE LETTERS BUT CANT BE SURE. I DIDNT DRINK ANY OF THE DENATURED ALCOHAL, I SWEAR. THE LONGER I LOOK AT IT THE MORE THEY LOOK LIKE LETTERS, IS THIS LIKE THE BIBLE CODE? IF I LOOK AT IT LONG ENOUGH WILL IT TELL THE FUTURE OF MAN? ITS ALIVE, ITS ALIVE!!!!!!!!!!!! HELP ME.......................

First off , use of all caps is considered YELLING, and not kosher.

Perhaps this will help you out with discerning the meaning of the cartouches on your stock: www.trfindley.com/pgsnstmpsm1.html
