leave the gun as is im sure you can find a bubbaed gun(a gun that has been hacked up) i know i have restored a few now to what they where and i got one bubba really had his way with with a cut barrel this is sadly too far for me to restore but it will make a nice .22/303 sporter (coyotes watchout )
id love to find a original no.4T but i do have two no 4 mk 1's and one has not been fired since my great grandfather brought it back home in 1945 the other was bought after the war and has been shot quite a bit
i would not shoot any mk 7 ball its more collectible then anything i have qite a bit of it and i still will not shoot it although i have in the past and they do tubmble when the hit the target (deer) just as intended with the light nose

You're absolutely right
Mr. Cypher- assuming you weren't going to slap the rifle in the old drill press
So we have 2 threads melting a bit, I close mine. I will take in consideration your advises, It could be a nice adventure to build up a n°4 "sniper" from spare parts. I've already seen a P14 completely rebuilt with different parts, the result was very nice.
May I suggest to an admin to open a new thread with the parts of this one treating of the SMLE.
I've moved Peter's post and created a new thread germane to that subject created..
SMLE found by an author researching the fighting and retreat to Dunkirk

See if you can find a TR stamped action that was not converted. They're out there. I have one that was not and yet it displays the Enfield examiner's marks on top of the butt socket and the "S" on the cutoff boss.

I would love to spend a couple of days breaking down one of those pallets.
