The 1938 16 Gauge DHE, 30" Barrels, Special Order Code #19 - Ventilated Rib and Single Selective Trigger wears a brown, petrified "Frey Mershon Inc." pad marked "Pat. Ped." & "L.A. CAL.". The guns letter didn't indicate a pad. Some folks think it looks goofy, I'm used to it now and the LOP works at 14-1/4".
I wanted an original pad just in case I ever decide to replace the petrified (but whole) one. I'm okay with leaving it as is, though I could waver on the thought.
The 1897 32" barreled Syracuse L.C. Smith Grade 3 wears a very rustic Silver pad and it too could also be replaced. Perhaps I should have ordered a few more. I like to leave guns the way I find them, changing things for the sake of change doesn't interest me much.
