M1 Garand Danish Stock Discs


M1 Garands that were used by the Danish Army were returned to the US and sold by the Civilian Marksmanship Program. The stocks sometimes have a round inlet about the size of a dime on the bottom of the pistol grip. This inlet held a brass disc. It was used to identify the military unit the rifle was assigned to. The "H" stands for Hjemmeværnet (Home Guard) H.I, H.II, H.III, etc. The number at the bottom is the year the rifle was assigned to the unit. The years range from 1953 to about 1979. Almost all of the discs were removed before sending the rifles back to the US. The picture shows reproductions.


The disc and screw are made of brass.
The dimensions of the disc are:
Outside diameter: .690"
Chamfered Screw hole diameter: .275"
Thickness: .054"
