    Given the OP's description of the bore, I don't think it could be called "shooter grade".

    It is unusual to see a rifle with the substitute parts still installed. These were pretty thoroughly culled out and replaced.

    If you have a pristine No. 1 Mk. III, please don't butcher it to make a Delisle reproduction. There are lots of already sported SMLEs out there. All you need is from the receiver ring back. ...

    The rear sight base should be visible on the top of the barrel just in front of the receiver.
    I suppose that Remington could have made replacement 03 barrels.
    I suspect, though, that the barrel...

    Here in Canada, perhaps the wisest way to have a simulated suppressor is to have the barrel pass through, end to end.
    A non-restricted barrel must exceed 18 1/2". A semi auto Sten with a barrel...

    The holes at the muzzle would be for a front sight, not a scope block.

    Original stocks were cut using a series of single purpose, very heavy duty machines.

    1:7 is a faster twist than needed for most any .224 bullets used in an AR. It was adopted in order to stabilize the very long tracer bullet.

    The photo is of the receiver, a Mk. II which was drilled and tapped for a rear bridge.
    Probably safe to assume that the barrel is one for a Mk. II rifle.
