That is a prime example of “Trap shooters will go to ANY length with their guns to gain the “advantage”.”

That butt stock appears to not be original to the gun but a Research Letter may address it.

A research letter would tell specifications when built? and possibly who ordered it originally? Is there an associated cost with it...I saw a few prices for sxs's different grades but wasn't sure about SBT's. This gun come out of wisconsin and was given to a friend of mine by his now deceased brother in law....So I know nothing about gun or even a rough value...he is wanting to sell to me but values seem to be all over the board and especially if not original....

First time for everything! Never saw such an attachment before. Hard to tell about the originality of the stock, sans the "hook".

Round knobs on single traps are not unheard of. This gun is out of the era of "order books" so odd features will probably not be addressed in a PGCA letter. However, a letter would be a shot at getting some information on this odd gun. That is one wild Monte Carlo also, not unheard of but rare.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say that stock isn't original. Doesn't mean it's not really cool and probably a great shooting trap gun. I can feel 100 straight just looking at her.

I am very surprised that the stock in the wrist area has held up to use. It is very thin.
It is interesting to say the least and based on your photos it is a little difficult to see what exactly is going on there.
The stock from the wrist forward looks like it is original, but from the grip back, not so much on the upper half. But I cannot clearly see that it is two pieces of wood put together.

Then again the toe line of the stock looks right and even some parts of the monte carlo.

I think that it MAY be an all original piece of wood and the stock likely had a “full” comb on it which meant a lot of meat to work with. Then the top of the grip area was reworked into the shape it is in now and the germanic grip attachment was put on. The checkering is correct. The round knob grip... it would be cool if it is original. It could be. Just the photos of the grip in that area are not good enough to make a call on it. I wager that it may be.

Look at the first picture compared to the second and third pictures. The cut of the comb changes, like the gun saw a rasp between the first and the second and third pictures. The first picture shows a rasp cutting through the finish at the comb area before the second and third pictures were taken. "A trapshooter with a file, a rasp, and a camera". It is still a neat SC that I would like to own.
