Did the 1895 Musket use the same butt plate as the saddle ring carbine?  They might be easier to find.

Thanks,

It would depend on which musket version is being discussed and sought.  For instance the NRA musket in .30 caliber of 1903 and .30 caliber of 1906 used its own, unique buttplate.  Do you have access to the book on the 1895 model?  It has a section on the butts and buttplates.  Alternatively, what exactly are you looking for?  Tim

Should have said and will add, if you are trying to find a buttplate replacement for such as a Russian musket, yes, the buttplate is the same as used on the saddlering carbines.  Allow for some manufacturing tolerances.  Tim

I am actually looking for a carbine butt plate, but I am having no luck.  I thought that including the musket plate in my search might increase the pool of availability.

Thanks,

There were quite a few 1895 Russian muskets made, plus they were used hard.  As such maybe, just maybe, a buttplate from one of those may show sooner than one from a SRC.  Good luck with that though.  I do not know but maybe a buttplate from an 1894 SRC may work as well?  I suggest you measure the hole center to hole center spacing on the buttstock and see.  Tim

The Russian musket has the trap door plate

From several people and research I have done, the Russian musket plate and the 95 SRC plate are the same.  The maker of the reproduction stocks says his stocks are cut for the original plates and the 92/94 SRC plates will not fit.  I would think that with 300 thousand Russian muskets scattered around the world for the last hundred years, the butt plates would be fairly common.  Wrong.  I did find an old internet for sale ad where one was sold 5 years ago.  Somebody must have one.
