    The stock cartouches. The end of the stock looks to be stamped with a 2 (upside down in the picture). I'm used to seeing an S for Springfield. Any idea what a 2 might mean? Also why is there no RA cartouche? I've seen some people say RA is for Remington Arms and others that say Raritan Arsenal. But I've seen several Remington stocks with FJA and RA cartouches. I'm also a little confused with the OG (Ogden Arsenal) stamp. Was this used only on rebuilds or did Remington send rifles to an arsenal before issue?
