    I recently purchased a model 42 and want to find out what the original LOP was. My gun was manufactured in 1951 if that helps.

    Thank you

    Skeet may have different dimensions than a field grade. Thank you for the measurements. Anyone with a field grade LOP?

    Can anyone tell me what years the factory made them with matted ribs in skeet grade.

    Thanks.

    The LOP on my M42 is just under 14" (-1/16). This is a field grade gun manufactured in 1941, original black butt plate.

    I sent a PM to Dean but will ask here as well. Does anyone know where I can get a replacement butt stock for this gun and butt plate?

    Dean: The solid matted rib. I'll check the serial number and send you a PM.

    Thanks,
