    If that was in Canadian dollars it would be about $400 too much in my opinion. In US dollars it seems way too much. However, I don't know how scarce they are in the US. From my own research the lack...

    Hi folks, I'm not sure this project has any Enfield heritage, but maybe the admins can allow some leeway in these crazy times. :cool:
    This project is a continuation of a stabilization and...

    I've used a similar one for a project. It required a lot of sanding and fiddly fitting to get it right, then a lot of BLO applications to look good, but worked well if you have the time and...

    I think I can compete with the absurdity here. During the great Corona lockdown I am hand carving a blunderbuss stock out of a block of Walnut. Why? Because I need one for a project, and I suddenly...

    Thanks for the responses so far. It seems like people are having the same thoughts that I am. Namely, it's a 7.62 conversion of a no1 MkIII*, or that it's an early experiment, without the later...

    There is a passage in Skennerton's tome that refers to them being produced at Ishapore from 1960, but that is the only reference I can find.

    It's a 7.62 Nato, not a .303. It has the 2A magazine, the stamped sling, the squared off nose piece, the strange butt-plate... as I said, all the features of a 2A.

    Earliest date for Ishapore 2A/2A1?

    Hi folks,
    I'm thinking of buying a 2A/2A1, and it has a 1960 date on it. Everything I've read seems to suggest they weren't issued until a few years later -'64ish. Is it possible that they were made...

    The wire is strengthening for grenade launching. The Dial is the front part of a volley sight. The rest I don't know. Nice rifle. Don't remove anything.

    For what it's worth my LSA is by far the best quality Lee Enfield I own. Still shoots beautifully. I guess they are renowned for build quality.

    Thanks Jim,
    That's pretty much my assessment too. Glad to have it confirmed. Might have to swap the barrel band if it's not right though.
    This is how mine looks now.

    No5 using No4 forearm question

    Hi all,
    I've searched the forum, but so far to no avail. In Skennerton's tome there is a reference to an 09/'44 ROF Fazakerley No5 that they examined that had an adapted No4 Forearm on it....

    Thanks chaps, the up pressure on the barrel at the forend tip is OK, but it is just pinched by the top wood. I'm going to have to get the chisel and reamer out to give it space to move I guess.

    No 4 restoration question.

    Hi all,
    Here is a before and after pic of my latest project. A restoration of a fairly un-exciting sporter No4 made in October 1943 at ROF Fazakerley. Interestingly, it did not have the "Surrey"...
