I don't think they are GM date codes, but it was mentioned and GM methodology is good to consider.

I think batch codes are more likely as they seem somewhat sequential and batch codes would be helpful in tracking parts from multiple suppliers, especially if you want to track a small number of parts in a large run of rifles.

Maybe the plant was stamping them on the way in the door. I don't know and am speculating. It is an interesting question.

Thanks.  Can you provide some more details of the letter sizes and locations?

Something like this
RSG  
G
105

-----------------
There's a low wood/cut down SG on ebay right now, but can't read the slingwell.
It has a vertical mortice in the barrel band location.  Looks hacked.  Probably fixable.

The RSG is normal size above a larger 102 below.  The B is approx. the same size as the RSG letters... Hope this helps... Rich

Late to the party here.  I have a SG stock ser # 3357xxx.  


I see IO and 4  6  A.  If you look closely, to me, I also almost see an R in a different font struck lightly before the IO.
Thoughts??

I can see what appears to be an R.  Not sure at all. 
If the stock was made by Robert Irwin, we'd expect the IO to be overstamped on an SG.
If it the stock was made by Overton for Inland, then transfered to Saginaw, why the R?

Comparing with the Overton for Inland stamp on the Stocks webpage, the O looks wider.

Interesting observation, Matt.  I went back just now and checked height and width of the "O" against another INLAND stock cartouche with calipers.  Both H and W were identical.  Difference in the photos might be a slight angle shift in camera perspective.

It's pretty easy to determine the difference between Irwin made and Overton made stocks, just look a the nose profile or look for any markings in the barrel channel and slide well since they both used different ink stamps formats there (the slide well).

Some other sideways X overstamps have shown up on CMP and milsurps recently.
Do we think that is a 101 A?  with an X over the first 1?
From the photos on gun broker I'm going to go with Low wood (Type III)  unless someone thinks its a cut down. 
RSG located high.
Original serial number unknown.
