For the price offered that would be a tremendous deal! :wink:

It's got me wondering if the original Cabela's Dickinson trigger plate gun (sans the sideplates) has been discontinued by Cabela's?? IMO, if that's true, it's less desirable, as I don't care for the faux sidelock and schnable forend of the Plantation grade. They should have simply offered the original with upgraded wood, 24 LPI checkering, a top lever in the same shape as a Dickson, McNaughton or McKay Brown and a better finish--that would make one desirable gun.

According to Cabela's, they are carrying both the original trigger plate guns and the (upgraded?) trigger plate guns with faux sideplates. The mystery at this time is the lack of inventory. Hopefully that will be resolved soon. It appears the demand is out there.

They had a few in the Atlanta store yesterday. Shame they exclude shooting from the left with their bent stocks. I probably would have walked out with one if the cast were neutral.

Yesterday I found one online that looked like it had exceptionally nice wood.

Called up and was told it had "Cast on for a right-handed shooter". We went around and around about the irreconcilable contradiction of that. At one point he put me on hold to go "research" it, then came back and told me that "There is no such thing as cast off. There is only cast on." He was adamant about it to the point of being quite rude. He did annoyedly assure me that the stock was "bent to the right for a right handed shooter."

Ended up buying it, I'll report when it gets here.

These are pretty nice little guns. I just got a few in 16 ga & 28 ga and have been very surprised on the quality/value on the guns.

I think these will sell well specially on the deal I have them at

Well, this is the way my luck runs: Picked it up from the FFL and it has cast-on. I've sent the Cabela's store several emails over the past week about it, including pics of it along with guns that have cast-off, to show the difference. They haven't responded. I'll give them a couple more days and then complain to corporate headquarters.

Not sure what my options are, I've never bought a gun from Cabela's before.

Always wanted to try hot-oil bending of a stock, but not on a brand-new gun.

I recently bought a Dickinson Estate (trigger plate lock) and my stock is neutral.

I've got a couple and shoot left handed with no problem. The stocks are pretty much neutral from what I can tell laying a straight edge down the rib... Don't know for sure if that is by design or by chance but shooting my buddy's 20/28 combo gun is no problem either so I'm leaning towards design.

Most of the ones I've seen have had a bit of cast-off. The only one I've ever seen with cast-on is the one I unfortunately and inadvertently ended up with.

At least some of the variations in stock dimensions are just wood doing what it wants to do. And the fancier wood gets, the more it moves over time.

Finally heard back from Cabelas, a very nice phone call. They told me to go have cast-off added to the stock with the gunsmith of my choice, and to send them the bill.

I have the Daddy of the Dickinson - the S&W Elite Gold and it is cast neutral. As a LH shooter, I find it easy to shoot well.
