Apparently, the hole goes all the way into the stock and the ramrod is full length. Good idea, but the downside would be a weakened grip where long guns often break.
I have a 20G one of these so called monkey guns in excellent condition. The ram rod does go all the way back through the stock but is very thin so really doesn't weaken the stock much at all. Very light weight.

The seller seems to weave in a lot of "hype" on his listings. "LOOK AT THIS", "ONE OF A KIND" - and on this shotgun "probably never fired"? It's certainly been refinished at some earlier time, so why someone would refinish an older piece and never fire it raises some questions (that I would "probably" never trust the answers to).

Sixty years ago when I first got interested in black powder guns, an old wise collector advised me , "When in doubt, don't buy it ; if you do purchase it, make sure the price is very low". I'd personally pass on this gun.

Looks like the Spanish made imports sold by Dixie starting back in the mid-1960's. A friend back then owned one.

That ramrod hole going back to the end of the butt stock was a common feature on many Spanish sporting guns during the period.
