A museum quality replica of a Brass Butt Identification Disc used on the SMLE rifles and other weapons.
We have made this double sided so that you can either have the arrow facing out or not.
The screw has a tapered head so it fits flush into the counter sunk hole either side of the disc.
Butt discs date from around 1900 to 1944 and were used to identify a certain weapon to a certain soldier to whom it would be zeroed.
Some discs had just numbers, others included the unit, regiments etc. There is a very good book ‘The Identification of Buttstock Marking Discs in British Service’ by Capt. Peter Laidler, which is till available online from a good military book specialist. The book explains the use of Butt Discs much better than I ever could.
