I have just receive what was described as a No.8 rifle forend and handguard.
The forend is for a No.8 Rifle.The magazine well is solid timber, It is stamped CR373 with an 82 Enfield acceptance mark. It does not appear to have ever been fitted to a rifle
I am not sure if the Handguard is for a No.8 Rifle or if it is for an Enforcer. The Handguard is not ribbed lengthwise. Is is stamped internally with "C.MOON & Co 85" It also does not show any sign of being fitted to a rifle.
Does this indicate that the Handguard is for an Enforcer rather than a No.8 rifle?
The two parts appear to be made to fit together. As can be seen in the above pictures, the channel for the front band matches.
Did C.Moon and Co make the handguards for No8 rifles?
Can anyone suggest a source for a No.8 Rifle Front Band? I have looked in the usual spots with no success.
Your help and guidance will be appreciated.
