    One of my No4's does almost the same thing with some HPBT loads I have for a ross rifle, but with Spitzers no worries at all. Enfields are funny.

    5thBatt has it all covered there. A #4 Mag case and #3 follower are the right combo.

    painter, you speak my mind entirely, to the dot even. Glad someone has tried it before me.

    Yeah I never touch boiled linseed with my rifles anymore, but lucky for us in aus there is a company that makes and sells RLO in decently large bottles. Hopefully this might save me some time. I'll...

    Pretty much my thoughts exactly Cinders. I have a few sporter stocks I try all my repairs on before working on my nice rifles so I will use them first, but still figured it was worth asking.

    Extreme Linseeding

    G'day there, just an idea I had a little while ago to get linseed back into really dried up old stocks.

    I was thinking that rather than applying 56 coatings of Linseed, letting it sit, then wiping...

    Stocking up P14

    G'day there, I have a rifle I am restoring at the moment which had a lot of cracks in the fore-end (Tang crack, behind the mag, etc), but I have repaired all of that as good as I can.

    One which I...

    That rifle has seen some hard days. Looks like it needs some Linseeding :). Also I am quite jealous honestly.

    Some of us don't have lathes nor the know-how to use them? If it was not so much of a kerfuffle then I would not have had to get mine from Scotland and someone else from here would have offered a...

    Hey it looks like a genuinely rebarrelled 'H' SMLE. I see plenty with Heavy barrels but they all lack the 'H' stamp on the very front of the butt-stock like this one. I see a big old date stamp or...

    I believe I have seen pictures of only one No4 which looked better, and it too was an NZ rifle. Definitely about as good as they come. Now its your job to keep her that way haha.

    I am a tad late to this party but I must ask what it looked like before you set about repairing it?

    Well there you go, that is quite interesting. Was it common practice to replace your worn charger bridges in refurbishments and so on?

    Even so, thank you very much for the insight as this is...

    Cinders I noticed that too, and the upside down "D" in a circle beside it. Any ideas?

    Omark, the varnish is off now. It was on pretty thick and did not look like it was applied the best. Stock was...

    Thanks for clarifying mate. The packing definitely does not have the finesse to it as the centre bedding.

    If that stamp is to do with export to the US then how did it get over here? haha.

    Otherwise I could only offer them a fiver.
