Re: question on m1868 springfield stock....

The first sounds like a stock from a refurbished M68 or possibly an M70. The second stock with its two cartouches (at the rear of the stock flat) and not having a third or fourth is a problem. The two cartouches in the rear indicate the stock was from a CW rifle, but CW rifles had the spoon in their stocks. I do not know what you have. Are you sure both stocks have, or do not have, the ski slope shape at the rear of the receiver?? send me a photograph of the cartouche locations, the rear of the receiver to see if a ski slope is present and the inletting for the receiver.
