The current Remington manufactured handstop is for the newer style (40XB) and fits the rail, it is just not the same shape/configuration of the original. The early handstop (40X) which is for the short slot rail is not available and is the one we are duplicating.

Now, CMP calls ALL the rifles listed "40X" and although the USMC versions are 40X with the early style stop, some of the heavy barrel versions are actually 40XB's with the full length rail so there is a mixture of 40X and 40XB coming to us. Unless you ordered the USMC version you will not know what handstop you need (early style or late style) until your rifle actually shows up at your door. You can't even really rely on the serial number (which will have a suffix of X or XB) because the stocks may have been switched over their lifetime.

When I get back home next week I will post pics of the different rails, handstop variations and usage so that it is a little more clear for everyone.
