I am really getting attached to carbine #36245 and any plans to break it apart have been put on hold for now. On the bottom of the forearm in the middle of the stock, someone has carved the letters SEW about an inch long,and I was told that any soldier who marked his piece could be court martialed. If you turn the stock around, it reads M35 below the stacking swivle. I am wondering if anyone has ever seen company markings like this on the bottom middle of the stock. Thanks, Jim
