View Full Version : early to late butt plates
When was the change over from early to latter styles of butt plates on winchester and inland carbines? I can find no ser no ranges for this.
How do you identify specific manufacturer butt plates? I've never seen a stamp on any of mine. Thanks!
There are some marked buttplates.

Starting on page #105 it talks about and shows pictures of buttplates.
Just remember there are mistakes it all books, none are 100% correct.
I know what they look like . I was wanting to know when the newer style replaced the older style. Thanks
