The Numrich kits are ITAL kits, without barrels, the Sarco BM59SL 'Argentine' kits have barrels but are a different BM59 variant.

The stock on my rifle (pictured above) is a T2 stock that Sean modified, it uses the standard M1 butt plate and eliminates the issue of the BHO pin walking out on standard BM59 stocks.
My Sarco SL kit also came with a current aftermarket rear sight, or at least some of the parts were aftermarket.

Thanks for the information on the kit you received.

That price is about 10X what it sold for when it sold on that Form 3!

The Numrich kits are complete. All metal on mine is in great shape. Very little wear on the finish. The stock is ok. Donít think it is original to the steel as the inlay is burnt but should clean up. The upper handguard is toast. The lip that slides into the retainer is burnt off. I will call tomorrow to see if they will replace it.

Assuming they don't stand behind it, what options are there for a new handguard?

Perhaps Yellowhand could restore that hand-guard? It might be worth a PM to find out.

The ITAL handguard is a standard Garand item, the E handguard is as well except about 1/2" shorter at the rear.

Well, pulled the trigger with Numrich, so I'll see what I get.

Anyone who ordered their parts kit from Numrich receive it yet?

Pretty happy with mine - think everything is there, parts in great shape with minimal wear, stock is a bit more beat up than I was hoping for, no cracks though, handguard is excellent.

Yes, but the stock is so-so and the handguard is splitting. Metal condition is very good.
