Kind of a small group us Ruger single shot guys....
Update, 2 pc of masking tape at front edge of fwd base gets ring square per this bbl.

I suppose you could remove one from a donor bbl assembly.
Cost more than the Lumley ( when they made em )
Yes, the 760 stocks are low comb. You can switch them to 7600 style.
You can also run the original w a Weaver base and low Burris Zee rings. Mine...
Might order a walnut repro AH forend off the web. Reg B would be better maybe. But think if running the factory buttstock the AH look better. Bag...

Yes, if most of the shooting is on the range, and you're gonna play at 100...
Yup, need to know first to last hole spacing.
