They did, or the company that became Glock did. Wonderful rifles!!
From Years ago w/ St. Marie mount. Mount is gone, rifle is safe and sound. They are over engineered.

There is a pressure point in the area where the chest muscles join into the shoulder. You might have had someone grab you there. If you have it's quite uncomfortable, even disabling if the person is strong or trained in hand to hand combat.
A 6.5 lb 20 ga with 2 3/4" field loads has a recoil of 12.8 ft lb.

The Winchester '94 .30-30 just does not fit everyone, whether too big or small.
I'm 6'3" and 250lb. They are just too small for me. The 1892 fits better.
I add 1" to rifles w/ 13.5" pull, which seems to be standard. For prone shooting, 13.5 is good. 13.5 is also fine w/ a coat, but I never wear a heavy coat hunting.
