Also, does anybody know what the 2/45 and 10/54 stamped into the stock mean? Are these arsenal refurb dates?

And the forearm number *should* be on the outside of the forearm just behind the nosecap, if replaced by an armorer. By the way, I do have an OA-marked sight ear. PM me with your address if you want it, say shipping and a five for it.

Logically they are dates, but why they are there could be for a myriad of reasons.

One reason could be that :
Every year a percentage (10% or 20% ?) were taken out of the armoury / stores and fully checked, then marked to show they had been inspected, then returned to stores. Could this be the date(s) it was inspected ?

If it was due to having a 'refurb' or major parts parts replaced there would be a marking (such as FTR) alongside the date. (Or, in the case of India FR)

Okay. I can't see a serial number but the back of the leaf is stamped WA above the numbers 43.

There is something in the stock just next to the nose piece but i can't make heads or tails of what it is.
