I have too little knowledge to say. But does it look like what they sell here -reproductions?
https://bardalls.com/shop/ols/products
from what I have read they say to look at the wood with magnification where the stamp cuts into it. does it look like freshly cut wood grains or old. also, of course, the whole rest of the stock, is it correct for the period.

here's one that I got from the North Store in January. you should be able to clicl on it to enlarge the picture

That is fake. The stamps on the Bardalls site referenced in the previous post are also fake.

Joturkey, focus your attention to a comparison of the relationship between the right leg of the SA "A" and the 3d leg from the left of the "W". They are noticeably different. Yours forms almost a straight line...not so with the OP version.

The shape of the "G" and the cross cannons are the teo things that stand out as fake to me. There are other indications as well.

Disclaimer: Always learning and the eyes are not what they use to be! The SA GAW looks pretty darn close, but the Crossed Cannons have big differences from those stated to be real so I call Fake. Here is another that is stated as being real.
