Here you go: Fewless shotgun, Fewless Skeleton, M-70 cast repro from Treebone, McFarland shotgun "English", McFarland Skeleton 'Rifle (pointy toe).

IMO: Niener at 4 7/8' or even 5" are to short for a 14+ LOP.

How much will you take for the Peters checkered plate? I will find something to put it on. How much does Glenn charge for his buttplates?

Glenn's plates are top notch and are my first choice in either solid or skeleton form if they fit the particular project.

Just put one of his solid plates on a fancy Beretta shotgun job. Really happy with it.

I'm sure Glenn will chime in with current pricing.

I will send you a nice recoil pad for the $45,000 rifle. That is quite a piece of work.

I've known Glenn for a number of years now and his metalwork has always been absolutely impeccable. Repeat, ABSOLUTELY IMPECCABLE!

And, just as importantly in my mind, he walks the walk. National BPCR shooting champion using one of his own rifles; how many smiths (of any era) can/could say that?

Steven,
Thanks for the pictorial. I love Larry's checkering.

The Mcfarland plates listed in the new #64 Brownell's catalog are listed as solid or skeleton with the option for English style which the catalog states has the spur on the heel. There is no mention of one style being shotgun and one being rifle. I like the shape of the one you have listed as the "rifle skeleton" and would like to buy one in a solid form if I can figure out which one that really is. It looks to be about 5&1/4" by 1&1/2", which is just what I'm looking for. Maybe a call to tech support on Monday.
Steve

If I understand: the solid non-English looks just like the skeleton shown (with pointier toe I don't like).
I simply prefer the fuller lower end, both for recoil and the appearance it give the stock shape.
