    Not Central, but I found a couple of these John Wilkes sights some time ago. The dovetail is angled correctly for a Lee-Enfield, presumably to fit the Mk.1 type base on a No.4 rifle judging by the...

    LPS-3 is not a lubricant, rather a anti-corrosion coating that will harden over time. You may want to clean it out and apply some oil.

    Doug, the screw should not rotate with the arm. I wonder if your problem is the plate itself. When the sight arms were removed from rifles in service, many times the threaded boss was ground down or...

    Slightly domed slotted head, 0.9" overall length. The thread minor dia. is about 0.13", so pretty close to a standard #10 wood screw.

    Been there, done that, still have the drill bit. Grind the tip of a 1/4" bit flat and clamp it in a tap wrench. Turn by hand very lightly checking depth as you go. Really no need for a pilot as you...

    I have to think that if action bodies actually stretched over time we'd see a lot of cracked ones. And we don't.

    Looks like the rear sight protector is reversed-the sloped side should be forward. Nice rifle.

    Same here! I think the thread is not an exact match, but close enough to hold and not bind over that short distance.

    It looks pretty sloppy. I'd guess either an Indian refurb or someone has tried to hide pitting.

    If I had to guess I'd say that the BSA code was obliterated while it was in service somewhere in the world, only because I can't think of a logical reason for a private owner to do this. Assuming...

    Around these parts you can find them in reasonable condition for $500, sometimes less.

    I don't see a problem with the nose cap, but the band is not original-it's profile is flat rather than rounded. I wonder if a narrowed front band from a No.4 rifle was installed at some point. Don't...

    The barrel should not be able to turn at all and it will require a gunsmith to repair this. Can you get your money back?

    I think the varnish and mismatched bolt bring the value down way below $450.

    If you're going for a correct restoration this wouldn't be the thing to use. The reinforcing band across the back end would be an obvious fault.

    I saw the pic in the Photobucket link. Looks like the wood has been sanded half to death and varnished. Yuck.

    Cleaning and lubrication is the logical first step. If you have the means to do so, check the firing pin protrusion and the striker spring weight. Protrusion should be .040" - .050" and it should...

    Thanks for posting the photos. I hope you'll keep us up to date on your progress. Any sign of a date on the lock? For what it's worth, when I cleaned up my Snider I polished the brass parts and when...
