    Default G33/40 question

    Hi. I just found a DOT 42 c block. I can't see any cartouches on the stock. It isn't sanded and the spine, barrel channel and hand guard have matching serials. Any thoughts? Thanks

    Ive never seen a laminate 33/40 stock with any acceptance stamps on the butt. Just serial number on bottom. Not sure why that is. John.

    Right, and you'll normally see a dot code on the top of the upper handguard.

    Here’s a shot from my well-used laminate 33/40. It’s a no-letter block dot 1942. Has serial on the keel, two WaA’s on the wrist and one below the stock serial.
