Greetings to the Board,

So - back in around 1930 - if one were to special order a Model 12 with specific stock dimensions, does anyone know if "cast off" would have been an option?

My recently-acquired Model 12, which is set up along the lines of a Tournament Grade gun (raised solid rib, straight English-style grip, checkered fore and aft, but with a 32" barrel) has a buttstock with a very distinct right cast off. I'm not sure how best to measure that, but it seems to be about 3/8". This makes sense to me, since - with the cast off - my eye aligns right along the rib.

I just wonder if this buttstock could have been ordered that way, or if this was some sort of after-market adjustment?

As always, TIA,

Tom

Tom,

Winchester would on special order make a stock with a requested "cast off" dimension.
