Thread: How is the overall length of a rifle measured?

    How is the overall length of a rifle measured?

    This may be a daft question, but when a manufacturer gives the overall length of a rifle, from which point of the stock is that measured? Is it from the toe of the stock to the muzzle, which would be the longest measure, or a horizontal projection as if the rifle had been measured with callipers parallel to the barrel, if you see what I mean?

    usually top of butt plate to muzzle.
    unless you have a particularly pokey stock profile I doubt the difference would be more than 1/2" or so
