One gunmaker's idea for a custom made buttplate.
An assortment of buttplates.
Buttplate - A plate made of some material harder than the wood of the buttstock, fitted to the end of same, to protect it. It may be made of hardrubber, horn, plastic or steel. It may be shaped relatively flat like a Winchester "Shotgun" butt on a rifle, like a crescent, or with all manner of protruding appendages in the interest of achieving consistancy of mounting position as in a Swiss or scheutzen buttplate. It may be finished smooth, checkered, striated or engraved.
Or, a gun's but may be finished with no buttplate at all---just checkered directly
