    It would appear so from the look of the seams some grafting has taken place. Not uncommon on wartime production. By the looks of the wear and the finish the repairs were done early in the weapons life, maybe even as part of the original stock. Doesn't appear to be in a particularly stressed area, as long as the receiver seats properly and there is no risk of the butt end causing physical harm you should be ok.

    Would redoing the stock take away the integrity of any glue or what ever is holding it together?

    Save the dust from sanding. Dremel a small groove along the line. Mix dust with a stainable wood glue and refill. May not get a perfect match.

    Yeah I'm not a huge fan of stock work. The results are nice its just a long drawn out tedious project.
