One of your stocks may have been sanded at the arsenal level too...I had one stock that had a very narrow heel..I actually liked the feel of it...if it wasn't for the mag well exposure.
Questions are always welcome here...keeps the forum going.

When IBM started manufacturing carbines the location of the serial number on the rear of the receiver varied considerably. If an adjustable sight was installed, sometimes part of the serial number would be hidden under the adjustable rear sight. Around serial number 391XXXX IBM started consistently stamping the serial number far enough back to be seen when the adjustable sight was installed. Your picture is a good example of the serial number being stamped farther back.
My personal feeling is that there is no downside to showing the whole serial number. I see it being done quite often and I usually show the whole serial number when posting photos. When you see guns for sale on the auctions, many times the whole serial number is shown. If you think someone is trying to "steal" a serial number, the same thing can be done at a gun show. How many times have you gone to a gun show and seen the last 3 or 4 serial numbers covered over so you can't see them? Also books and magazine articles show the whole serial number. I think it is a case of over paranoia.
