Is there an advantage to having the buttstock with the ferrule versus one without? Ad if so, can a ferrule be fitted to a non-ferrule stock.

Soldiers training pushed the buttstock into the ground to help propel their weight off the ground. Non ferruled stocks cracked at the tang screw. So they designed the ferruled stock to be stouter in that area. I prefer the look of the stocks without a ferrule. I don't intend to abuse it so it should last forever for me. You could make it work I suppose, but there would be some gaps.
