Good evening Dick! Thank you for your comments. The barrel is indeed 29.6" and the butt does appear to be thinner than many of the pictures I see online. It somewhat reminds me of my .50 Kentucky black powder without the "down turn". I do plan to keep it as is. No sling. Stock needs nothing but perhaps a light wipe with linseed. However, I must perform surface rust removal before it goes to pitting. Again, thank you for taking the time to respond!
