Got this a week or so ago, sorry in advance for the crappy pics. My Sig barreled M28, serial 8720. Considering these stocks were originally used only up until ~6,000-6,300 I'm sure its almost certain this stock is a replacement. None of the parts match except the (force matched?) bolt body. I have a few questions:

1. Notice the roughly cut second (upper) sling hole on the stock. Anyone have any rough cut like this?

2. The force-matched bolt numbers and filing marks look a bit odd to me. Anyone else?

3. The trigger is a "two-hole" M28 trigger and has two pins like M39 triggers, however the "mouse-trap" spring is missing; anyone out there have an extra one they'd be willing to let go?

4. The stock has two stock repairs on the underside, see pics. I've seen these on other M28 Ski-trooper stocks, is this repair fairly common for these?

5. Rather hard to see, but the barrel shank has two SA stamps stacked just behind the rear sight. They are upside down, not really what I'm used to seeing. Any thoughts two why there are two, doesn't really appear to be an accidental double stamp?

Thanks for any input you guys can provide. Just a few things for which I've tried searching but haven't really found very solid answers.

A little bit better picture of the barrel shank and double SA stamps. Sorry I'll try to get one in better light/focus.

Yeah, I guess I should have mentioned that and probably would have answered my own question ;). Its stamped with a bunch of other numbers and letters. No 20 though. Something like this:
5
J
103488
V

It may be outside the range for having a ski-trooper stock, but you should check anyway to see if there is a "20" stamped on the back of the buttplate. M/28's had their original stocks matched to them there, whereas replacement stocks won't be numbered or will have a different number (probably).

Yeah I understand what you're saying. The "5" I mentioned earlier is in the same spot where your "33" is.

There's sometimes a number on the top of the buttplate. It's basically irrelevant for an m/28 though. A matched buttplate will be like so:

Thanks for the comments guys. I also pretty sure that the stock was a replacement due to the serial range as well. I got it mostly for the ski stock, but also have been looking for an M28 for a while. The stock is a lighter color than most original Finn finished stocks I've seen, but very similar to the worn areas on my Sk.Y. M39, which has a pretty visibly worn but solid stock.
