Would cast be mentioned in a factory letter?

It would be a special order, so if factory record still available, I would think so.

  I have guns that letter with length and drop measurements, but what is cast? Is it a side offset?  Does Winchester call it “cast”? T/R

I’ve seen it in search results for model 21 shotguns and maybe one rifle with very specific stock dimensions. I suppose if it’s available they’ll include it in the letter or search result.

Yes.  Usually applies to shotgun stocks.  Believe there was no extra charge for cast on a Model 21.  Most extreme cast could compensate for having a dominant left eye.

They both letter with the amount of “offset” noted.  I just don’t have the images on my “travel computer.”  And the offset 1886 that I own does also.  Again no pics.  Sorry

Michael – as I was starting to work my way through this thread, I immediately thought of your rifles (and shotgun).  Glad you jumped in.

I did some more digging and I did have a copy of the small section of the ledger for the Model 1892 rifle.

Thank you.  I didn’t recall cast mentioned in a factory letter.  A rifle I have was claimed by the seller to have some cast but I don’t see it and the factory letter doesn’t mention it.
