I know the abbreviations ADL and BDL refer to whether a rifle has a blind magazine or hinged flooplate; but, what exactly to they stand for?

I always understood a stock without a cutout in the bottom for the magazine was stiffer and would theoretically make for a more accurate rifle, but I would suspect that, all other things being equal, I wouldn't be able to tell the difference in accuracy between the two.

Hmmm . . . perhaps my understanding of the ADL and BDL designation was in error. I thought CDL stood for "Classic Deluxe", but maybe that's wrong too. Nevertheless, I see the ADL and BDL abbreviations in stockmakers catalogs identifying whether a stock is cut for a hinged floorplate or not. I never see CDL to describe an aftermarket stock.
