I have a Remington 03A3 in a Smith Corona stock that was rebuilt at Raritan arsenal.The ordnance wheel is overstamped RA-W.Anybody here know who  inspector W was and what time period he was at Raritan?I've read that inspector P(I think Peterson)was from 1943-1946.

Here's a good link for cartouches and everything 03A3:

Yours may be a Benecia Arsenal refinish, as the R is close to looking like a B in the picture, and the only W inspector I could find.  Hope this helps.
