    In my opinion there are a lot of newcomers to the sport of vintage and service rifle shooting and to Lee Enfield ďenthusiastĒ collecting. In my business weíd rebuild several no1s and no4s every...

    Iíve set them up before with pic rail mounted to the bracket. Once I think it was an off the shelf arrangement that fit (client supplied). The next time I machined it to suit.

    Does the rifle have a heavier than standard barrel? Sometimes the rivets and steel reinforcing pieces need to go to carry say a Lithgow Heavy no4 barrel in 7.62.

    If you go the fibreglass route, use epoxy resin and a woven cloth and not polyester and chopstrand mat. The epoxy sticks to anything and you can almost be guaranteed of a very good bond. Polyester...

    I had a batch made to .311 major bore diameter. It’s no drama for me to export to Canada either.
    These were done by Lothar Walther and shoot fantastic.

    Any good paint stripper will remove the finish on the stock. The finish is probably just old built up and oxidized linseed oil, and if it's varnish it will make short work of that too. Be careful...

    Hi Nijalninja, it would be hard to pickup a decent set of skills without some trade training. And either way is a long road. IMO you'd be best served to do a metal trade like fitting and turning or...

    They will go into either. I know the threads are not the same, but that is an SIA barrel, and it will go into no1 or a no4 without a drama. With that breeching collar it’s meant for no4.

    You’re missing the point Cinders. I’m not advocating butchering your rifles, and I’m not saying that stoning the cocking piece is something everyone should go out and do.

    Cocking Piece Nose/Sear Adjustment

    Hi Gents, a while ago I was doing a trigger job on a No4 or a No1 and I was trying to get the lowest safe trigger pull I could get, and the way I had been doing them to date (freehand on a stone)...

    Here's the .223 No4 I'm running at the moment. I love it and shoot it most weekends, it gives me around MOA accuracy and just doesn't skip a beat. The pictured group was just the first rounds fired...

    You are going to do more harm than good messing about with this. The bedding looks fine and probably just needs some finessing and crush collar adjustment.

    If it's keyholing rounds I'd be replacing the barrel, and bedding it while I was at it. If it's throwing the odd one sideways, the stability of the rest has got to be pretty marginal

    Armalon in the UK do a very nice no drill mount for no4. Head and shoulders above the ATI. Maybe have a look at that if you want to avoid drilling and tapping a nice rifle.
