Had a local shop call and tell me he had an SkY m39 that they were selling. Showed up and it was a 28/30. Couldn't whip the cash out fast enough to take it home.

Took it apart and there is grease everywhere. Is this original? The stock is not serialed to the gun that I could see but it has some weird paint on the buttplate.

Please give me some feedback on the grease and stock and if you think its original.

Thanks!

I am currently cleaning a 1940 28/30 with the same grease, so I'd say it is original.

Looks like they used it to keep the cleaning rod nut in place in this one.

I've yet to see that particular number inside a stock, but it appears correct to me.

Also, many of the ones I've taken apart have the same heavy grease on the barrel.

Its my second 28/30. Got a 38 and 39 now. I walked in with the thought in the back of my mind it could me a 28/30. Took 2 seconds to see that it was a 28/30.

So what is the meaning behind the numbers in the stock?

I'm going to leave the grease in there. What a surpise to find that all.

The paint is black but not sticky. Just one band across the buttplate. When I get back around it, I will take a picture. Looks like something used to identify it in a rack.
