    Saw that this morning, but I was too embarrassed (for the rifle) to post it.
    An absolute mess of an otherwise nice BSA-No5.

    Nice purchase and very good-looking rifle. You mentioned you are familiar with US milsurps, but not so much with Enfields. I would have to guess your vertical stringing is caused by improper stock...

    The other 1944 is an...

    I'm late to this conversation. I was in the gun safe, and all of my 1943 T's have the quote stamps (No 4 Mk I").

    Best picture I could conjure up.

    Serial number seems to indicate a Maltby manufactured rifle. Posting some pics of the rifle would definitely help us sort it out.

    Here is a muzzle pic of my 1905. Sight hood was installed with slope towards muzzle. The screws are untouched, so I suspect it was assembled like this when it left the factory, and would have been...
