Cannot answer your questions other than to say it was between LBH and full production of the revised carbine. They probably had the thicker wrist in mind almost from the git-go, but LBH drove home the need for rods. Hard to believe they repeated the wrist stupidity on the Krag, but they did!

You're two up on me - I've only seen one!

Of course, given the great rarity of that stock, it is at least possible that you might have seen one or more fakes. The forend and inletting for the bar then become crucial - also the presence or absence of the cleanout hole under the trigger guard - which has tripped up a few wise-guys over the years.
