Cleaning up a bit, I came across a couple butt plates, alloy of some sort, in really decent shape.
One is Savage Ilco marked, the other is W&T. A.(Avery) marked.

If interested Pm me with an offer and mailing address.

These are still available; plus I also found another that has a Malty(stylized M in a square?) casting mark then stamped F, is a No4 brass very good condition.
shoot em if you got em

Its called "ZAMAC", or Mazak, actually an acronym for its components.
"

Zamak alloys are part of the zinc aluminium alloy family; they are distinguished from the other ZA alloys because of their constant 4% aluminium composition.[2]

The name zamak is an acronym of the German names for the metals of which the alloys are composed: Zink (zinc), Aluminium, Magnesium and Kupfer (copper).[2] The New Jersey Zinc Company developed zamak alloys in 1929.

The most common zamak alloy is zamak 3. Besides that, zamak 2, zamak 5 and zamak 7 are also commercially used.[2] These alloys are most commonly die cast.[2] Zamak alloys (particularly #3 and #5) are frequently used in the spin casting industry.

A large problem with early zinc die casting materials was zinc pest, owing to impurities in the alloys.[3] Zamak avoided this by the use of 99.99% pure zinc metal, produced by New Jersey Zinc's use of a refluxer as part of the smelting process."

I have one of those alloy butt plates but its different than the rest for some reason.
Its more lightly constructed, not as robust as the rest of them.
I have no idea whats its off of.
Its a touch smaller than a no 4 butt-stock profile, but will screw right up to it.
Its like or near new.
Does anyone know what is was originally for maybe?
