Thank you Dick. Would it make sense that this type of Carbine be one that could have been upgraded with one of the approximently 250 or so transitional carbine stocks that have the long comb, short wrist and no holes drilled in the butt for tools? I'm still trying to figure out when these stocks were made, why, and on what carbines and serial number range they were originally installed. We know that weak wrist areas prompted the longer comb but complaints about the lack of helpful tools came in at the same time. So why make these stocks with just the shorter wrist and put off drilling the tool compartments? There's a reason but what was it? If anyone knows or has a theory, I'd appreciate it if you would share it. I've seen three of these stocks in my lifetime. Michael H. Collins
