    Ross Sniper stock, full length or cut?

    Badger,
    I ran across your Ross sniper posts. This one has a short stock, is that the norm? In my Ross Rifle Story, page 180 the one they show has a full stock? Which is correct?
    Thanks,

    Brian,
    Thanks for your help. Peter remarked that some of the end of production rifles did have dark wood, so who knows? It is a very nice rifle none the less.
