Younger brother broke it, never was honorable enough to fix. This is a sweet gun and I am willing to go to just about any length to restore it, esp since I got it from my father. I have several pieces of the old plate, which is shattered, but put together like a puzzle, you could see what size I would need. Where can I go to try and get the plate for it? Thanks in advance.

Connecticut Shotgun Manufacturing has a number of vintage plates, I believe the old Winchesters are among them.

Good luck with your project......

Lots of butt plates on eBay.

And try B0b's:

Also, the gunsmith at my local gunshop has a box of all his take off plates. I found a plate to fit my WWII era Stevens 620 in that box.

I bet most gunsmiths have similar boxes.
