Rifle stock, gun tools & parts from Marine ordnance repairman

This came from the estate of a Marine who retired in 1968. Is any of it military?

 

thanks for any and all feedback

Possibly the nomenclature plate off of a hand-cart or trolley? :think:

The two brass tubular things with the blocks on the end...those are first model bore inspectors...there should be a mirror set at a 45 deg angle inside the block...you put the tube part into the chamber, and it allosw you to view the bore from the side...later ones were parkerized steel...

 

If you mean the things with the Garand stock, those are Garand op rods....

Good find, there are 1911 .45 ACP parts, 1903(A-3) Springfield parts, M-1 Garand parts and BMG 1919 parts. Headspace gauges for 30.06, throat errosion gauge for 30.06 and looks to be barrel crowning tools. Canvas pouch is for M-1 Garand cleaning rod(WWII).

I've been searching around online and those M1911 22 cal. conversion kits were used by the Marines.

I see some headspace gauges, TE gauges...all great ordnance stuff...

 

As far as the op-rods...looks like they are post war, with the stress relieving cut...the drawing numbers would really tell the tale as to time period. They are good pieces, and not cheap generally, but the ones that really fetch the money are wartime unmodified op-rods...

 

A good slant cut unmodified Winchester rod is worth its weight in gold....

 

I think your plaque is off a truck, literally, probably a mobile ordnance workshop truck...

 

Its a sweet grouping all the way around, but a gold mine for an ordnance nut like me!

I looked up the numbers on them (all the same) and they are the M1 Garand 653582SA op rod as manufactured by Springfield Armory during the early 1950's for Korean War and later production.

The piece with the handle and red stripe may be a tool for turning the windage and elevation knobs in the M1 rear sight.Top down 2 headspace guages,2 M1 Garand gas cylinder plug guages,a breech bore guage for checking throat erosion,2 more headspace guages,the circular piece with the hole in it is a ring guage for barrel diameter at the gas port I'm guessing for the M1 rifle.

I imagine that went on the back door of an M7A2 small arms repair truck, which looked like this:
