Re: [Weapons] Stock Marking, M1855 U.S. Sharps

One thing I ran into which I'm 99% sure has no bearing here,is that during the CW, the intials "W.O.G." stood for "Warrant Over Grade" to identify the paygrade or range for civilian specialists serving with the troops, such as farriers. I can't think of any reason rifles would be marked in that context.
