LB's

You can expect to pay 80-125 bucks for a set of wood. LB wood is available :) , just have to look for it. :( Skinnerton has information on which woodmakers made wood for these rifles, it is possible to get the correct stuff.
If the metal is nice, and the bore good, as you say, I'd go up to $200.00 on it, if you need it to fill a hole. Be aware, tho, that $300.00 will get you a nice LB from that year; The no FTR is a nice touch. Finding a matching mag is harder, and unusual as well.
Yes, the grooved upper hand guard would be correct AFAIK; So, you are left with a dilemma. What to do? How thick is your wallet? How often do you scroung at gun shows for wood? Do you like projects? Can you beat him down to $125? :D
Just rambling thoughts from a Long Branch collector.

My LB

MY 3L 1942 Long Branch is not serial numbered on the forestock and is all matching.
Cheers
1941 1L882 non FTR'd is non serialized on the forestock, as well. :D

Butt stocks are the easy things to find. Don't fret about that!
