    My Savage MK1* scopeless (T) has an alloy butt plate. My BSA MK1 (T) has a brass buttplate.

    They started out with brass and changed to alloy sometime during the War to use the brass for bullets and other items requiring brass, but some 4T's have brass plates; probably used what they had...

    A Long Branch Sniper will have an alloy buttplate or later steel.

    Brit's are commonly alloy or brass, and the Savages I've seen are alloy...

    Actually the "brass" is gunmetal, not brass. This is mainly seen on British examples.

    Canadian made examples tend to have Mazak (grey alloy) and by 1945, blackened steel.
