Very good question. I own three original barracks racks made by Rock Island Arsenal. Two are rifle racks and one is a carbine rack and revolvers. The revolver rack has the same number as the slot for the carbine. The rack holds twenty carbines and 20 pistols the colt SA or the S&W revolvers. You don't see many with numbers branded in the stocks. but knowing the army you were assigned a number and a trooper more than likely placed his number he was assigned in the wood to I'd his weapons.
