I just got this yesterday and thought you might like to see one that still had the cartouche. It is only the second I have seen with the cartouche and decided to keep it. These are a little uncommon there being a little more than 25,000 made between 1915 and 1918.

Gary,

I have had several of these over the years, and all of them had the makers mark. I actually have never seen one with the marks removed. Is it common for them to be ground off? Maybe I have just been lucky?

Nice Very Pistol!

Here are some WW1 Mark III Very Pistol accessories:

Hi Chris,

The cartouche is the army acceptance stamp on the grip panel. The makers mark I too have never seen ground off, but the cartouche on the grip...that is what is unusual. Nice accessories BTW!

Gary,

Ah, I see what you mean now. That is a Raritan Arsenal rebuild stamp. Identical to the stamps on M1903 and M1917 Rifles rebuilt there from 1918-1941

Here is a link to a site that lists all the rebuild stamps and what they mean:

http://m1903.com/isstamps.htm

Thanks for the complement!
