I'm still looking through my PhotoBucket account, but the most typical wear pattern has the lugs D-shaped: round with a flat area. I'm sure that someone will have some photos.

Remember there are two parts to the tight lock up equation. Certainly you want lugs as close to round as possible as opposed to flattened D shaped lugs. But, the wood on the stock will become compressed over time. So even a new trigger guard may not give good lock up on an overly compressed stock and conversely a flattened D lug guard may give good lock up on a new or lightly compressed stock.

New lugs I have measured go from .200 to .203. It is handy to have some with worn lugs for fitting with new CMP stocks. Less wood will have to be removed and if the fit becomes loose just replace TG with one with less wear.

Noticed this yesterday on a service grade I received a few weeks ago.
