As usual, I am wrong. The I'll fitting butt pad is indeed screwed on. I will probably remove & search for a steel replacement. What's the possibility of finding a correct plate? Will also do some stock refinishing. Sent email photos to Campfire Member. Thanks for all the help.
Heck, I'm wrong more than I'm right!!!
It's us that don't admit it that gets into trouble!
Glad your able to take that off, and then see what you need for a butt plate, if anything.
I had a Winchester, with a red rubber soft recoil pad screwed over the top of the original hard rubber/plastic like butt pad using the same screw holes, so you never know!
Some of us have seen a few things and are willing to help.
A great community!
The serial#looks like it's been whited out with a paint stick!
Can't really tell from your pics what the heck is going on there, but something's definitely not Correct!
