Another thought... The "rifle" or crescent buttstock was, I was taught years ago, supposed to be fired between the ball of the shoulder and the biceps, resting as it were against the upper arm, rather than on the torso in "the pocket" formed by the ball of the shoulder and under the clavicle.

I was taught it was a rifle designed to be shot from a standing position with the crescent out on the upper arm.

You are free to discard this idea, as I have no independent knowledge, other than instruction received as a callow youth... too many years ago.
