I was aware of the coachwood issue from my studies but went at it anyway LOL.

there were issues in WWII with recoil damaging the draws as coachwood is not as hard as walnut.  the factory and armorer's started installing copper plates to absorb the recoil.  not sure if it's still a thing.

Looks like a fairly honest rifle from what can be seen in the photo's. There was a very short period in WWII where Lithgow stopped fitting the recoil plates in the draws. They soon went back to fitting them. If your forend is matching, which it appears to be, you would be fairly unlucky to have one without the plates fitted. Replacement forends fitted after the rifles were sold out of service is another story. As A Square said, there's nothing wrong with coach wood. If the bore is in good shape and the stock doesn't have any major cracks, I'd buy a rifle like that if I was looking. If you do make the purchase, post some detailed photographs of the markings and we should be able to tell you what they all mean.
My idea of gun control is hitting what I aim at and nothing else.

thanks.  I did make the purchase but it's a process to get the rifle in hand.  send payment, seller ships to my FFL, apply to ATF and go thru Florida's 3 day waiting period.  bad enough but soon to get worse after our disastrous election.  probably not a great time to be buying firearms in the USA.  they are already talking confiscation on the "news".

That looks like a nice example to have in your collection. 
I doubt that you will have problems with confiscation with the next gouvernment; I don't think they are that stupid.  It would be the 2nd American Civil war if they did. 
I expect it's more scare mongering from people who want anarchy!
It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice!

Isn’t Biden putting Bozo/Beto O’Rourke in the job to grab all the “assault rifles”?  

Hard to say what might happen with the Dems in power in all three branches of Government, and that will happen if the two republican senators from GA loose in the runoff election.  All the sudden a lot of  leaning people want to move to GA.  Or maybe just mail in a bunch of ballots....

Yes he's both said that a repeated it.
But Beato is actively saying "he!! yes! kick down your door & come & take them"!
Biden (so far) only wants to tax & register them all to make Beto's job easier later.

but here's the thing.  biden won't be president long, he has dementia as anyone can see.  harris is a radical and will be getting leaned on heavily by the rest of the marxists in the "party".   it's not going to be pretty.

devrep is right on that.  That’s our real threat.  Old Joe is much more tempered, but clearly is having trouble, I wouldn’t be surprised if Harris pulls off the 25th Amendment claim and replaces him before the end of his term.

Only then can you start enjoying life under a socialist communist as we are currently in Canada under Trudeau government.

my Dad was a WWII submariner in the pacific and a virulent anti communist.  he told me this was coming from the time I was a child.  it just took longer than he thought it would.  #1 rule he taught us:

there is only one difference between a socialist and a marxist/communist.  marxists take power thru violent revolution.  socialists take power thru control of the vote.  the end result is the same.  oppressive control by the state (the state is the privileged few at the top), suppression or imprisonment and execution of dissenters.  

the socialists got control of the vote by taking over our schools and universities and brain washing children  this started in the 50's and has reached a crescendo.

That’s exactly what has happened.
