    Peeling of that LOP rubber and going with a thin checkered plate would suit me. Frankly the common choices between a smooth metal carbine strap plate and crescent are historic but lame. A “shotgun” butt flat plate is perfect. The extra milling on the crescent and carbine wrap around preclude a better option with that same chunk of wood

    I used to question the rubber butt pad also as my older JM Marlins didn't have them. But I own a Remlin with one and one advantage I have found is that in the summer months when sweat is rolling off of me the rubber pad tends to stay in place a little better.

    Just sayin.....

    Give me a rubber pad over a steel plate any day of the week. Rubber pads hold on the shoulder unlike metal.

    Like you I have one of the early model 41's, as I wasn't sure how long they would actually make the cal.
    I would have much preferred the 16" barrel also, as to the large loop. That I bought and swapped out.

    I could wish that they'd used the 336 action rather than the 1894, but at my age it's a moot point. Not buying anything new anymore.
