as I have said, the M1891 went through several reworks. the M4 of today is no different from a M24 of their day.
33 years of advancement was worked into the old designs to keep them working and competitive.
1. they were shortened to be easier to handle in more situations.
2. they had different sights.
3. they had a different stock.

the same is true for the M4 and the M16. 25 years after the M16 was adopted a shorter, more versatile carbine was adopted.
1. it has a shorter barrel
2. is has different sights.
3. it has a different stock.
any other changes that were made were part of the original stoner design and were removed by the US government to aid production and were re-added later when the changes proved problematic.
