    Thanks for the info, guys. What you all mentioned is what had struck me as unusual - the lack of foreend tip and grip cap, and the apparent quality of the wood. The crown looks good in the rifle, and according to the owner, the rifle has less than ten rounds through it. Am looking forward to trying it out. Am hoping it'll stabilize the 90 and 100 grainers so my young son and daughter can use it for short-range deer work in a few years when they're old enough.

    Best,
    Jon

    Yep. I think this settles it. Two photos attached from GunsAmerica. The first is an older ADL that does not appear to have the varmint-styled toe to its stock, and the second is another that has irons, which mine doesn't, but which does have the varmint-style toe. My rifle has nicer wood than the first photo and appears to be of the same tint as that shown in the second.

    So, I have a standard issue ADL in .243 with no irons and a varmint stock.

    Best,
    Jon
