Nickel 1906 oddity

I bought this rifle from a gunshop I worked at a number of years ago. It is as you see in the photos, nickel plated with a 1890 type buttplate. The serial is a Feb 1920 production.

The stock is basically the same length as a standard buttstock so I don't think it was cut down. I think I paid $300 for it.

Shoots pretty good, is clean with some minor wear on the finish. I suppose it is a custom order. I like it quite a bit. I don't suppose there are any hidden stamping that might give a clue as to it's history?

The butt stock looks like it came off a Model 90. The wood on the butt doesn't seem to match the fore end. I can't tell if the fore end is gum wood or not but that was standard on these rifles. It appears to be what is known as a Frankenchester but it is probably a fun gun to shoot anyway.
