You tell me...

The here a photo of three separate repro stocks laid on top of 3 separate original meriden stocks. The spread here is between 1/2Ē and 1Ē difference in comb positon (with the repros being farther back).

True there is variation in meriden guns, but I have found that generally the repro combs are back in the farthest position that one will ever find a meriden comb in.

Brian, It's hard to tell because of the light reflection, but are all three of those stocks wrist failures?

Yes, they are.

I actually measured four Repro stocks (1-12ga. 1-20ga. & 2-28ga.) and two original 12ga. Meriden Parkers. The measurements were taken from the standing breech to the nose of the comb. You're correct in that the comb position is further back on the Repros, but the position is only 1/8" further back on the 28ga. Repros and 1/4" on the 12 & 20ga. Repros vs. the Meriden Parkers.

Letís keep in mind the fact that the Parker Reproductions replicate the Remington Parkers, not the Meriden Parkers.

Of course Dean, I suppose a comparison to Remington Era stocks would be more appropriate. I do not have any of those on hand here to compare to.

There is enough of a departure from Remington and Meriden stocks on the Repros that I would not expect there is much to find simialar in a comparison. ie: wrist sizes, butt end sizes and overall proportions.

The heel radius on a Repro is much larger than either Remington era or Meriden era.
