    13.5 to 13.75 inches unless special ordered for a specific LOP.

    Both. The shape of the stock changed from the early perch belly with a very small pistol grip to the more straight type with a much more pronounced pistol grip, but the LOP remained constant for the most part.

    Hi sothere: Well make sure your putting it on a "late 40's" gun! Since there were 5 styles of field grade stocks, (7 if you count the two "English" versions). Makes it kind of easy to spot a "stock swap" if you know Model 12s!

    That didn't take long now did it!!

    Regards Dave

    Actually the stock is headed for a 1928 20 ga. on a temporary basis,the forearm is headed for a late 40's gun to replace the corn-cob someone altered to fit if the wood matches.Both solid ribs[:D][:D]The 28 gun has a period pad on the original stock that needs to be replaced.I prefer the later stock to shoot with and this is just a spare if you will,When I'm ready to replace that pad I'll be checking in again.Unless I find an early original stock in 90% condition.
