If your stock is birch it is not original unless your rifle is a rebuild...then the stock could be original to the rebuild.

It seems to be a deep gouge. What you could do is glue in the splinters, hopefully as they were originally. After the glue sets, sand it smooth to match the original contour. Then stain the area to "sorta" match the rest of the area. No, it won't look as if the damage never happened, but the gouge will be filled in and it'll at least look presentable.

Cheaper than replacing it, and the stock may be from the last rebuild.
