    Yes, it's good. The walnut scales are typical of originals before wear and sanding. The scabbard is a later model, commonly found when they were refurbed or reissued for WW2. All OK.

    You could have lapped it with a mandrel on a drill, must have been a labor with a case wrapped in sandpaper. Custom dies, saved yourself plenty there.

    I disagree, if that's the case I would strip it apart and sell the barrel for what I could get and small parts as well. It's going to cost LOTS to restore it and fitting the bolt isn't easy. You...

    Agreed, no ammo pouches even...maybe field training to account for plainly dirty knees and such? Also this must be an earlier picture as the uniform was changed in color soon after war's start to a...

    To answer the pointed question plainly, I suspect it's fine for shooting. Check headspace to see if it's even close or just shoot factory ammo. If the bore is good as you say then you'll be fine. ...

    Very nice looking rifle, if captured where you suspect...maybe by the RCR? One of their battle honors. That would account for it remaining in Canada... Have you any way to contact the RCR...
