No - The manufacturer is Winchester WW-10110263 - that is referred today as a big red but the 11010263 is the marking for the replacement bare stock. They we introduced in 1965 as some of the standard size stocks we cracking. These also were used as national match stocks.

My assumption is that all the other marks are likely from an armory or other sources over the past 51 years.

Winchester manufactured their own stocks. H. Sacks &Sons, Inc. was a subcontractor for the original Springfield Armory for M14 stock production. Both Winchester and H. Sacks & Sons , Inc. produced the big red replacement stocks.

I always try to retain all the markings on the stock when I refinish because they are part of that Stocks history - whatever that might be.
