    Blow torch hot?

    I might be better off with a new barrel. I can find used barrels, but no guarantee the rifling is any good.

    That looks a lot like an ATI side folder that they sell for shotguns. I have one for a Mini 30. I'd have no idea how he attached it to the Enfield without a stub of the butt stock.

    Pre dreadnought Mikasa is preserved. I don't think it's in water anymore though.
    It's the oldest preserved battleship, 1899, and the only surviving British constructed battleship.
