Just by looking at it. I have handled at least 6 or 7 original paratrooper stocks over the years . It does not even have the cross ( reinforced)  bolts  in..

It is new but not WW2 factory original. Sorry for the bad news.    BORE.

If memory serves, the seller did a limited run of about 5 stocks when he built a semi replica M55.

There was a thread on gunboards some time ago.

He built a semi Hyde replica also.

I would have the buyer stop shipment and refer to this thread . As said above , it is not NOS , only a new reproduction . I have one original , and the lack of the bolts is a dead give away .

Photo #5 is a different stock by the grain and color. I would definitely cancel the purchase and report them to GB mgt.

FWIW I saw this in the flesh at OGCA last week.  The barrel is cherry and to my untrained eye the stock looked real.

Looks like the real deal from here.   What was the "show special" price?   Easy way to get a model 55, and correct as many were done at the factory on 50 marked receivers.

Did not ask the price.  My M50 is parked and the receiver has a Numrich S/N.  It wouldn't make a very convincing faux 55.
