@nfafan: You might want to look again at the value of that SP1. the early models without forward assist are listed at $2100 in 100% and $1975 in 98%, $1850 in 95% and that has nothing to do with the latest hysteria.
@44AMP: you are probably right about the bottom cap on the pistol grip. I went in in '76 and the A1s we were issued had them but that was my earliest experience with them. Don't remember on the butt plate whether we had the trap door or the rubber. Seems like there may have been some of both.
