Re: skeleton buttplates
If we still had gun order records we'd know exactly how each gun was built; but all that survive are shipping records, which unfortunately do not contain such detailed information. That said, we do have factory documentation verifying that skeleton butt plates were an option, and the examples I've seen look suspiciously like Parker skeleton butts.
