Chief of Ordnance 1880 stock replacements

Posted by Stephen B. McCartney on Thursday, 17 December 2015, at 1:56 a.m.

Just a quick check on Google Books shows the 1880 CoO report (FY ending June 20, 1880). Carbine: "233 stocks, complete", and "1,107 stocks, wood part", were issued to the Regular Army Establishment. Granted, this is only for one year, but it surprised me at the number of stocks issued. What was damaging or destroying carbine stocks must be left to speculation. Upgrades might also be included.
