I’m new to this forum and it looks like there are some very knowledgable people onboard. I just purchased a model-42 with a plain barrel marked MOD. It appears to date from 1941. It has a skeet checkered forend that looks like it’s from that vintage and an uncheckered stock with a Winchester grip cap. I’m sure it’s a field grade but did Winchester ever make a field grade with that combination of stock and forend or were they most likely changed?
