I had the same question a few years back and could not find any photographs.  Attached is a photo of the interior of the box I made on my customer's rifle.  If I build another, I will use a tack configuration for the release.  Mine worked well, but I still wonder how the original release, cavity, and spring looked like.  If you find a photo of the original box, please send me a photo at  I have another rifle to build down the road  a bit that will have a toe plate box.  Good luck with the build.

I wonder if Randall Pierce might not have a photo?

Now That should be in the OTBF Cool Thread!  First I ever heard of such toe box.
