The older ones were actually the 760 carbines and some had a straight stock not made for a scope. If you wanted to have a "Benoit" style big woods gun with peep sights then retrofitting the 7600 with a straight stock will make the gun similar to the old 760. I fitted mine with a matching Remington shotgun stock and it turned out great. The gun shoots great and without a scope is a joy to carry while hunting the rugged mountains of northern VT and New Hampshire.
