Hi Gary,

I came across this one on GB.  Do you have this one in your survey?

That's a new one Don. Interesting with the carbine butt. Not in the letter although it may have come that way. I logged it as-is.

Also, this is a great example of an 1894 letterable short rifle with long fore-end wood ……… for the doubters. In the 20" rifles, approx. 20% of them have the long wood. Of those, the ones that letter are actually closer to 30% long wood.

That rifle has definitely "been there, done that" judging by the condition.  That carbine butt looks like it was on there from day one in my opinion.  Do you see any correlation of the long fore-end wood on the 20" takedowns?  It seems when I encounter long wood fore-ends on 1894 20" short rifles they are in takedown configurations.  All the standard (non-takedown) frame 20" short rifles I've come across have the short fore-end wood.  Just wondering what your survey reveals regarding that observation.  

Here's another example of long fore-end wood on a 20" short rifle and, of course it's a takedown:

You had me excited for a minute, thinking maybe there is a correlation between the long wood and TD's. No such luck. I sorted my spreadsheet several different ways, specifically on 20" takedowns. Its a fairly even split on the short and long wood examples in the survey.
