On the homepage, if you scroll down to, “When was your Winchester made?” there is a photo of a M1886.  It is worn as far as finish but seems a decent piece.  The buttstock seems to fit fine.  But the forearm – there is a significant gap from the rear of the forearm to the frame.  Clearly not from sanding.  It seems an interesting choice for a photo.  Is this an example where the forearm tenon is turned around?

Old Ollie Winchester had them make free floating receivers as well!!! Twice as accurate as having just a free floating barrel!!
