I saw that most 1897 Trap Guns came with a hard black rubber buttplate, and some with a solid red rubber buttplate (probably special order).

How can one know what was originally there, if the buttplate is missing? 1907 mfg. Probably LOP/length of wood, I’d guess. What were the standard dimensions?

Thanks!

On a 1907 production gun, it would have been the black hard rubber.

Never bought one of their BPs, but their PG caps are excellent:  https://gungrip.com/winchester-butt-plates-3.aspx
