I just bought a couple of gorgeous stocks, one for an Athena and one for an Orion. The problem is, I don't know what gauge they are for. I bought them for just about nothing to refinish and re-sell on EBAY.
Does anyone know the width of the gap in the stock where the butt stock meets the receiver on a 12 or 20 gauge on either of these guns. This is the only way I can figure out how to determine which one they fit. BTW, already called Weatherby and they didn't have the butt stock specs. Thanks for any help you can give.

Are these O/U or SXS stocks? Forend or butt stock? I have a Weatherby Athena made by Fausti in 20 ga. O/U. If you need me to measure the stock dimension I can in a couple days. Let me know.

Thanks. This is an over and under. I have the butt stock and the fore end. WIth the fore end, i was going to drop a 12 gauge barrel in and see if it fit. I am assuming if the fore end is for a 20, the 12 wouldn't fit. It would be great if you could measure the opening of the buttstock at the end where it contacts the receiver. Thanks so much.
