Nice gun Glenn. Have you taken the stock off to see if it is original to the gun?

The straight stocked NIDs I have seen have a long stepped down at the end trigger guard tang.

Looks to me like a pistol grip stock that has been reworked to straight.

1927 , 16 Gauge , 30 " barrels , full and full .
The butt stock has been worked on as you can see the wrist is quite thin , the trigger guard sits a bit proud of the wood and the comb has been raised .

The gun is muzzle heavy as a result of the work done to the stock .

It may be the original stock cut down but there isn't a serial number under the trigger guard , however it may have gone away when the wrist was slimmed .

I don't think that whoever slimmed the stock and did the checkering was the same person that raised the comb .The work on the comb is not up to the par of the rest of the work .

I'm guessing that the work was done for a woman as the stock is full length .

If I can correct the balance I can live with the small wrist . However with three daughters and four granddaughters it I'm not in a rush to change it .

On the NIDs I've had the stocks off of, the serial number was stamped into the head of the stock.
