I was aware of the hump difference, but had never looked at it from the (certainly valid) standpoint of the thicker one needing a slightly deeper cut. I do wonder though, if SA actually reworked mortises on a one-by-one basis.

One would think that it would have made much more sense to simply make the cut deep enough at the rear end so as to accommodate any band chosen from the parts barrel, without having to stop and hand-fit it.

One thing for sure, I'm not going to start disassembling rifles to check this out! [GRIN]
