    There was a story that in order to fill the contract they used some of the special figure wood for extra fancy orders...what a drill NCO rifle that would make.

    Very rare for all four to make it all the way through like that. Yes, the stock on that '14 is far from average...love to get a bit of clean and oil and see how it looks.

    Yes and I prefer the way the S&W index. They're both about same size. I'd prefer the S&W 1917, also had to settle for a Brazilian. Don't get a beater, it may not be right and parts could be hard...

    I had one of those here for years. Just sold it a few years back... You can't really get much for them here though, like a early hardback Carbine mag. Nothing special to these guys.

    All of that sounds normal because of barrel taper and the way they formed the barrel stock. It was always a crapshoot when cutting a barrel to riot, would it be thicker on one side?
