Please expound on this. Are you saying someone faked the matching serial numbers?Also be aware that many parts surviving on your rifle are not Longbranch parts, including the bolt, barrel, safety and rear sight are not Longbranch parts. A British fore end and furniture would be perfectly proper on your rifle.
There are collectors in whose eyes the only 'correct' rifle is one whose every part (down to the last screw) are marked with the date, the rifle serial number, the name of the factory that manufactured it, and the name of the worker manufacturing the part (these mainly tend to be collectors of Garands)Please expound on this.

My original plan was to replace all the wood, seeing as the stock doesn't match the rifle, and fit the old parts to an ishapore that Bubba got his hands on.
