    I have a set of the Prestigious L39/L42 wood here. I just examined the handguard and the lip at the rear of the handguard needs to be trimmed back so it'll go flush into the handguard retaining ring....

    I've never seen any distinctive markings on the British cheekpieces. What Roger says about them being worked on for fitting is certainly true so any markings in the channel could be removed. The...

    Nice rifle. My first Long Branch No.4Mk.1* is a 1943 New Zealand owned rifle. I've had it since the late 1970's. It's used but original and matching throughout. The others look as if they have never...

    I don't know that there's anything wrong with them other than the fact they are oversize. I've fitted quite a few sets and they are terribly time consuming but turn out well in the end. The forends...

    I'm glad you brought up the metal finish Roger. My guess is it was dip blued in Greek service. I had several wartime dated LB rifles in the load from CO that had the dark blue dip finish. I've also...
