After talking with JD and Remington the answer is yes no matter what. I cant remember for certain but I don’t believe they were on any of the 1950 to early 60’s wood stocks ive disassembled but ive been wrong before.
I am working on a 1950 4 digit serial number 11xx.
Ive included pictures with the last having the adapter installed.

Here is what I recommend.  Install the plate.  Slip the stock on and look at the gap.  If there is a large cap then lightly sand some of the stock off.  Go slow and take the slightest bit off.  Refit and look, if needed take some more off but you need a slight gap to ensure the stock does not chip or split under recoil.  The gap is so slight you will not notice it but it is critical to protect your wood stock.

Thanks for posting those pictures.   I learned something.  See even old junk yard dogs like me can learn new tricks.

Ive come to the conclusion there is no way this left the factory with a steel adapter. Here is a picture with the stock installed without it.
Now I will say it is a better idea to have one in there like stated above it can help save your stock but this stock never had one from the factory.

That is the perfect gap so you are right.   Try to keep that gap after installing the plate.  Also, if you are not shooting heavy load you could get by without it as light loads pose little threat to chipping of splitting a stock.

I agree JD and thanks for answering my emails. It is spot on perfect right now. If I put the adapter on a newer wood stock its the exact same as the older one without a spacer.
Ill just shoot reduced recoil which is what pretty much everyone shoots and it will last till my grandkids are ready for it. Who knows maybe longer its ONLY 69 years old now.
