Re: 1873 Carbine Stock Question.

I'm not saying this is the reason, but it could be a possibility. I had a Remington Rolling Block Sporting Rifle in 44-77. It was a fairly light rifle for the caliber, probably about 8-8 1/2 pounds. When I first got it I took it apart to make sure it had matching numbers on all the major parts (including the butt plate), and under the plate was a hole(s?) drilled in the wood and filled with lead. Somebody obviously wanted to add a little weight to help tame the recoil!
