Does this look like a authentic Anchor mark on the stock? Any counterfeiters out there?

Looks authentic to me. Never came across a Bogus one. Not to say they probably don't exist, I've just never encountered one.

joeblack,

You say it is a 1928 Navy Stock so does it have the offset Enfield sling swivel? Is the latch nickel? Do the numbers on the wood and buttplate match?

joeblack,

Looks correct to me also. Can you post additional pictures of the latch and butt plate?

Missing the swivel, buttplate and oil can "door" looks to be a very worn blued steel, and the oil can is nice and green (tarnish) Button for the locking "latch" is blued. (This what you mean by latch?) No serial numbers on the wood or buttplate.

joeblack,

The latch Arthur is referring to is the nickel colored prortusion that catches on the under side of the receiver/grip frame. The button depresses the latch to allow the stock to be removed. The button should be blue, the rectangular shaped protrusion should be nickel (unblued) in color.

The serial numbers referred to are on the underside of the butt plate and on the rear top of the buttstock (underneath the butt plate) over the hole for the oil can. The number on the buttstock is hand stamped and should match the hand-stamped number on the inside of the butt plate. Youe have to remove the two retaining screws to locate them. The butt plate should also have either a script or block letter "R" stamped next to the retaining pin for the trap door hinge. Again, this is on the underside of the butt plate.

You say that the swivel is missing? Is there an area recessed on the bottom of the butt stock for the swivel, or was one never there?

Ok, thanks (rookie here as if you haven't figured that out)

The latch is Nickel plated, the numbers on the wood and buttplate are 47XX
Has the "R".
Swivel is missing, it did have one.

Well, based on your description you have an original butt stock for a Colt Thompson 1928 Navy Model. Whatever you do, dont try to enlarge the milled area for the sling swivel to try and accommodate a WWII variety swivel. The base plate is smaller on the Enfield type swivels used on the Colt Thompsons. A WWII milled swivel will not fit. Trying to enlarge the area to make one fit will ruin the value of the butt stock to a Colt collector.

By the way, are you interested in selling the stock?

I've been "kinda" looking but haven't been real motivated.

A customer ordered this one in and now has a cash issue. I'm thinking of purchasing it from him.

Low 20's worn bluing finish, all Colt, stocks dinged up not a museum piece but I'm gonna shoot 'er with a OOW parts kit.
