I was working in my gun room today and saw something I had not seen before. I had taken every 42 out of the display case or gun cabinet they were in to put a price tag on all of them. That included the Eisenhower guns. One of them was Assembled and the other one was still in the leather gun case disassembled. I had laid the assembled one down on a flat area of one of my gun cabinet and was really surprised what I saw. There was a huge cast to the stock on one of the guns. It was so extreme it looked like it was warped. Now I had handled these guns before but had never noticed that at all. I got the other one out of the leather case and it was exactly the same way. So I take it these guns were hand fitted to the shooters. They never mentioned that in the Model 42 book when they described the guns.

Although not mentioned, since these were very custom guns the cast on the guns seems fitting to me. Did you measure the amount of cast it had Larry?
