Does anybody have any knowledge about a Model 1894 trap door butt plate? Rarity; time period; etc.

Thank You

I currently have (21) of them documented in my research survey.  Half of them are on standard Sporting rifles manufactured in 1926 & 1927.  Those found prior to 1926 were special order.  Beginning in May 1926, Winchester manufactured a couple of small batches of them using surplus Model 1873 Trap Door rifle butt plates.  I estimate that Winchester manufactured approximately 500 – 600 Model 1894s with a Trap Door butt plate.
