Someone was telling me the original Ruger No.3's early production buttplates were of blued steel instead of the horrible black plastic that is on mine. Is this correct? If so does anyone have one or know of anyone who has one? In the alternative does anyone have an aftermarket buttplate that is made to fit the Ruger No. 3 without a lot of work? Also I am looking for a vintage [40's-50's] side scope mount for an 03 Springfield Sporter [not N.R.A. stock or 03A3 action] in good, clean shape [not G&H], something more pedestrian [CHEAPER/PROJECT GUN!]. IF YOU HAVE SOMETHING LYING AROUND SHOOT ME A PM WITH A PHOTO AND PRICE. My email is: 03sprg@windstream.net
Thanks As Always, Brothers of the Blued Steel

The early No. 3 butt plates were not blued steel, they were blackened cast aluminum.

Most guys try to swap out a #1 butt, they are hard too come by, though.

There used to be an aftermarket steel buttplate for #3, 10-22, and I think, the original .44 auto carbine. Had one on a .30-40 #3; not custom quality but beat the pants off that plastic "thing".....
