The following post from Steven Mace (copied from TFL's "Harley Nolden's Institute for Firearms Research" forum) should help to answer your questions.

Good luck, and good shooting!

Karsten, the Mossberg Model 185D was made from 1947-1971. The Model 185 was a part of a series of utilitarian grade bolt action shotguns:

83/183 - .410 bore
85/185 - 20 gauge
190 - 16 gauge
200 - 12 gauge

The 'D' suffix indicated interchangeable choke tubes (F, M, IC). With a 'K' suffix the shotgun would have bee equipped with the 'C-Lect' choke.

Today in excellent condition a Mossberg Model 185D could be worth about $100-$125. Gun Parts Corporation does list a replacement stock, item #704370, at $59.95 each. Hope this helps!
