If I recall correctly, and that is NOT a given, only post war Long Branch #4 rifles don't have the serial numbered wood. Ergo, if you want a matching Long Branch, and this one is a '44, and chopped, then look elsewhere.

Go with what Lee Enfield states. What I recall is being concerned with a 1950 Long Branch I owned at one time not having a numbered forestock. When I asked about it, I was told on this forum that post war made Long Branches were a) among the finest #4 rifles made and b) did not have numbered forestocks.

I read and read in Skennerton, but never found it written there, ergo my uncertainty.
