Garnett, I also need a longer-than-average stock--my gunsmith says I have "ape-hanger arms."  But I usually just put a Pachmayr or Limbsaver pullover pad on shotguns.  Easy to apply, ugly-but-removable, and very effective in recoil reduction. 

My hunting buddies tend to be purists and hate these "butt condoms" but they do admit that they help keep the gun from falling over when set against a tree, fence, or pickup, and they do avoid some scratching from brush and "bobwire," which a permanent pad won't do.  I call 'em "butt body armor." 

The one negative of this solution for me is that you have to remove the pad and dry off the stock wood after any dew or rain contact (not presently a big problem out here, unfortunately....).    But that takes all of ten seconds.

Mike, have you considered removing the hard composite factory butt plate and replacing it (without cutting the stock) with an Old English style solid recoil pad?  This will lengthen the LOP about 3/4 inch and maybe help with the recoil.  Also, I prefer a longer LOP for my personal use. 
Nice gun in actual "collector's" condition.  Especially like the walnut stock!  I'm not a fan of single barrel 12s because of the recoil but for a collector, they're fine.

I have a 28" full choke 12 guage as an extra barrel for my 219B, with matching shotgun forend, so I'll have a chance to see what that recoil is like when we get some rain and the public ranges open again.  I have some very light-loaded skeet shells for this "experiment," and my rebuilt right shoulder seems to handle recoil bettter than when it was a wreck, so I may have to revise my prejudice against single 12s!
Pommagerdai,   Do you have a question or did you start to make a statement?

Thank you.
Chad, Here are pictures of the cocking stud attachment to the barrel lug for cocking all models starting with the "B" suffix.  I hope this helps some.  These and many other pictures about these two model guns are in my book.  These pictures show both style barrels, with and without the cocking stud.

Picked up a 30/30 with a 220D reciever. Took it home and it wouldnt shoot. Through lurking (then joining) this forum I discovered that the reciever has a cocking lever on it and barrell does not.
Does anyone have pics to post showing the differences between these barrels and recievers? I search bout could not find.
