My first thought was same as Abilene mentioned and thought maybe to cause the cartridges to eject at an angle which to me is silly, that's what hats are for.

The funny part is, it throws the casings forward 90% of the time. May have to contact Winchester on this one, just to confirm if this block is good.

KrazyK:
Here you go Abilene!

Abilene:
Well like I said it seems that most Miroku '73's do throw the brass forward, which is a problem for getting your brass back on many stages at matches.  I have seen some mods for grinding certain areas of the top of the carrier to help with that.

Thanks for the pics.  Super-nice!  I have seen really fancy Miroku rifles but I think this is the first fancy carbine I've seen.

Thank you! If I am not mistaken, this carbine is new for 2022.

King Medallion:
Looks great, nice wood! That will really look awesome once some natural aging settles in.
