The 1904 early version had a crescent butt similar to the 1873, changed to the Model 04 in 1919 then became the Model 04a in 1927 and changed to a flat shotgun buttplate.

Hello
does somebody know what is this marking "J&J" seen under the barrel on a 1904 and 1902 ?

The fear of weapons is the sign of a lack of maturity
