Gun parts corp had repos a while back, check with them. One question, do you need the S plate or a SRC plate? They are different, after WW1, early 20s the rifles and carbines used the S and hard rubber plates

I only assumed on the name ,but it is the one where the top is formed by folding it over ,an upside down and curvy L shape,mine is close ,and as you can see I could fit it closer by taking out wood and doing some more fitting,however than an original if found may not fit without more refitting.I would rather wait maybe find an original and see if the originals are close enough to one another to slide nearly right into place,Here,I need to remov nearly an eighth of an inch off a nicely curved point of wood wood to make it perfect .It’s not an impossible task as I bedded a crescent plate onto a flintlock I built last winter and ,successfully,but with a lot of careful rasping and lampblacking.I would like to at least try an original first,if even possible to find one. I was able to form this close by careful forging without disturbing the stock contours. View attachment 863521 View attachment 863522 View attachment 863523
The one you pictured is the SRC carbine but, that was phased out in early 20s
