Sorry its taken a while guys but i found there source and you're right. Looks to be a recoil reducer. The actual reducer is stuck fast in there, but what was making the noise was the wood dowling seen on the table which is free to slide back and forth about an inch or so.

problem solved. Next problem...how to add about an inch in LOP to the gun (cheaply)!

British used ebony, Bakelite, hard rubber, or hard tight grain walnut for stock splices.
No effort to match the stock wood, an obvious extension between stock and India rubber recoil pad.

Cheaply? Get some flipflops from the dollar store, trace the butt, cut it out.

Or a slip on recoil pad from Walmart.

Look for a Morgan pad.

Is it stuck in there, or threaded to the stock bolt?

As to increasing LOP by an inch or so, get a good recoil pad and grind to fit.
Pachmayr, Kick-eez, and a few others all offer 1" thick pads

Off to the left in the photo you can see he has a thick recoil pad already.

Better eyes than I; saw it but couldn't make out how thick or thin; figured it was thin since he was asking for thick.....................

I figured he had a recoil pad and needed a spacer.

Friend of mine made a clear Plexiglas spacer to get his trap gun to suit his build.
No trouble identifying his gun in a rack of BT99s.

If you are good with wood you could add a grain matched addition to the existing stock or a contrasting addition. What is the length of pull with the existing pad? What is the distance from the inside of your elbow to the first joint of your trigger finger? Ideally those should match up closely.
