    I couldn't agree more.......I've been saying never say 'never' & never say 'always' in relation to Lee Enfields for years. Many inaccuracies in otherwise good books are because people have been too...

    Bugger! I've got a couple of real ones to restore & sell. I'd better get my skates on before mine become worthless......!$?!;)

    Only just caught up with the thread. I see the 4T has now sold. It's a genuine 44 BSA action - looks like it may have been a 'less telescope' rifle. The wood looks to be genuine 4T wood, but is much...
