    Call Dean at Skeet's Gun Shop (918/456-4749) and ask if they will interchange, which I believe they will; if so, then your late model stock will need to be inletted for the long tang which any competent gun smith or skilled craftsman can accomplish.

    It seems to me the late model BT trigger guards are a bigger loop leaving a fairly large gap between the bottom of the trigger and guard. Some people have cut their long tang short leaving enough material to drill a hole and screw it to the bottom of the wood. Others have used the late model guard drilling a hole in the bottom of the receiver and cross pinning the mounting pin as the factory does on the late model BT's.

    As suggested, a quick call to Dean at Skeet's Gun Shop will answer all your questions.
