Stevens 416



Log in to see fewer ads
Iíve have a US Government 416 I picked up a couple of years ago and at the time I did some research and was able to decode the letters engraved on the side of the stock, they referenced the armory or plant that refinished it and the workers initials. At that time I identified the plant and the workers name through online records but am unable to find that info again. it appears engraved in a square as follows,

BA
JPL
Any ideas where I can obtain this info again?

BA would be Benecia Arsenal in California
JPL would be the inspector of ordnance at that facility (sometimes a military officer and sometimes a civilian inspector) I will have to check my reference books on who JPL might have been
