It's a model 1908, but it has a short 1st variation forend(1909-21) and a 2nd or 3rd variation stock(1922-30) which has the flat pistol grip bottom, the 1st variation had a rounded bottom, so either the stock or forend was changed sometime, or the book is wrong and they made some changes during production. It was made somewhere between 1909 and 1930, best guess is it's a late 1st variation or early 2nd variation if original.
