I just removed the buttstock from my 1916 vintage Model 1894 SRC (30 WCF) and found the word ‘SPECIAL’ stamped on the head of the stock where it mates to the receiver. The stock is a standard carbine configuration with straight grip and a carbine buttplate. What would make the stock ‘special’? Thanks!

Did you check for non standard length of pull or drop?

I completely dismantled the rifle yesterday for cleaning and will measure after reassembly. I didn’t pay much attention to the marking until this morning.

The stock measurements are as follows:

LOP – 12-3/4", center of trigger to center of butt plate

DAC – 1-5/8"

DAH – 2-5/8"

Are these dimensions unusual? Thanks!

That sounds standard to me.

The LOP is shorter than standard by .5".

It might help if you can post a picture.
