Now that's creative. I'll never be able to look at one of those black plastic ones the same way again.

Aluminum butt plates very popular in custom benchrest rifles (virtually no recoil).

This was mounted on a 50's custom stock for a 37. I suppose it was a gunsmith's individual creation - never saw anything like this in old ads or photos.
