remove the buttplate screws, and the buttplate. In the large round hole in the stock is the stock bolt. That is unscrewed to remove the stock from the rifle.
Simple as Pie. (or PI). Remove the buttplate screws and buttplate. Unscrew the buttstock Bolt, all the way, with a LONG screwdriver, remove the bolt and slide off the stock.
pull the forearm downwards from the front, open chamber, push barrel rearwards to remove. remove buttplate screws and buttplate. insert 7/16 socket and extension into hole and remove bolt. stock can now be fully removed, this is as far as you normally need to disassemble for regular cleaning.
First you must remove the buttpad, or buttplate that you have on the stock. You will reveal the hole that the bolt goes into. You will need either a long screw driver or a extension attachment for a ratchet wrench in order to take the bolt out and the stock off.
The steel piece is the original buttplate.
The stock- or more specifically, the buttplate (fits on the end of the stock)
Best left to a gunmsithAnother answer:Many rifles also have a stock bolt under the Buttplate which if the buttplate can be easily removed (some are not easily removed). There should be a large hole under the buttplate where you can see the head of a large bolt with a flashlight. Find the appropriate long-shanked screw driver & tighten the bolt. Stocks sometimes loosen up from shooting recoil. If you have wood shringage, swelling, warpage,wood rot, oil damage, etc. then take the first answerers advice.
Most likely a inventory or unit marking.

It is a metal device that sits on the end of the stock,that goes up against your shoulder when you shoot the rifle.
The buttplate on a Ranger Model 35 was made of steel and blued. It is about 1/16th inch thick and you can make one and cold blue as a substitute. If you want a rubber/plastic butt a Marlin 60 fits pretty good. I'd go with the steel if it was my choice
use a saw and chop the stock, then refinish and attach buttplate.
The collector value of your Model 1894 can only be assessed by a visual inspection & evaluation. Old Winchesters are very much like old classic automobiles... the graded condition, the factory originality, and the specific configuration are the key factors in determining what they are truly worth.
It would have come with a hard plastic buttplate with the word 'BROWNING' on it.
Take off the buttplate. There is a screw inside. You'll need a long screwdriver and a flashlight.
Remove buttplate. Use a socket extension and rachet to unscrew the stock bolt (it's in that hole in the center of the butt)

Yes It was a crescent buttplate held on with 2 screws. I have one that was made ca 1901 that belonged to my grandfather.
The Winchester Model 1904 was never serialized. The model was introduced in 1904 and discontinued in 1931. Here are some ways to get a little closer: If you have a crescent buttplate, 1904-c.1910, hard rubber shotgun type buttplates after c.1910. Light checkering on the cocking piece through c.1914, heavy knurling afterward. Barrel markings on top of the barrel through c.1917, on the side afterward. WP proof mark in an oval after c.1918. Diamond-shaped cutout on steel pistol-grip piece, c.1927-1931.
I can start by saying your serial number indicates that your Winchester model 52 bolt action 22cal.rifle was one of 3,787 rifles made in the year 1937.Winchester made 125,419 rifles during a time span between 1919-1979.Your model should be the model 52 sporter with a 24in.round light weight barrel with a front sight cover,sporting style select walnut stock with cheekpiece,hard rubber pistol grip cap,and a hard black plastic tipped forearm.The buttplate should be steel and checkered.a 5 shot magazine was issued with the rifle.If you have a model 52A,which was introduced in 1937 this signifies that the receiver and locking lug was strengthened.I hope that you find this informative.
