I am no expert and my advice is pretty lame. As a rank amateur, I would look very carefully at the cheek piece to see if its wear and pattern of wear (dings, etc.) matched the rest of the stock. I doubt Century would have tried to match the wear, and I doubt there are many complete stocks laying around, but I could be wrong.
Upon closer observation: From the photo it looks like the butt stock may be in better shape than the forestock? Maybe there were spare sniper butt stocks laying around?
i would suggest that you do more research, as im no expert. i did however take a look through my book on them, and it would appear that your rifle is a well put together fake. there should be a T either stamped or electropenciled behind the model # on the side of the reciever.
when looking at Enfields never say never. I have delt with most of the Enfield guys at one time or another and been shooting with them at Bisley and even Peter Laidler who wrote the book on #4T's will tell you that. Again show me a picture of the top of the stock at the wrist and the right side of the receiver.
