Hi everyone,

I have been looking to get a Winchester 54 for some while now.

I am still looking and I notice at least four different Stock kinds.

Does anyone have any links to illustrations of the Factory Stock options for these?

At first, I was suspicious some had been re Stocked, and, this may be, but looking closely, I do suspect there were several Factory options available.

I would like to know more about this if anyone can help.

Were the Stocks Serial Numbered to the Gun on the 54?

Welcome to the site.

Can't satisfy your inquiry. Others might have some wisdom toward the 54 stocks.

Rather than a treatise, just a brief mention of the several kinds of most typical/often encountered Model 54 stocks. Early version, 1925-30, Schnabel type with pronounced drop from bore-line at buttstock. Carbine version with grasping groove. Later so called NRA style stock design tending toward much more modern lines. No carbines offered in this latter era 1930-1935. Best is just to have a look at the common rifle and carbine styles. Very interesting model these! Originality an important factor in value; just a word to the wise. Good luck and...
My take

Return to Winchester Model 54
