I am about 99.999% sure that gun is not right.
The ONLY way it could possibly be "right", and that ignores some finish/part anomalies, would be if it was THE S.A. "sample" for the new butt-plate. Even that runs contrary to the known sequence, since the thick wrist came before the trap.
Another point - the stock stamps are WAY too fresh for the rest of the gun.
I do not know the seller and thus cannot comment as to his qualifications, or honesty. He may well be completely "innocent" and simply passing along what he was told, or has read in bits and pieces.
Personally, I would not consider buying it.
Just my $.02.
