Thread: Custom rifle question

  1. #1

    Default Custom rifle question

    I have noticed on some higher end rifles and shotguns with fine wood, there is sometimes a little gold emblem placed right above the rear sling swivel on the bottom of the stock near the grip cap.

    Can anyone out there give me a little insight on what these are for or information about them?

    I've seen some with stickers that identify the type wood the stock is made of. This Winchester I had one on the stock that read (Walnut).
