    The scope appears to be intact, blued finish, and as far as I can see, completely original. It has a star, hammer & sickle, etc., No. 5, with a serial number and 1939. Heavy thing.
    I should have...

    Unusual Sported Ross

    A friend brought me a rifle to get my opinion about it.
    It is a Mk. II Ross creatively end extensively sporterized by a skilled amateur. Decent workmanship.
    It also had a telescopic sight mounted....

    FWIW, it is a Sportco front sight base. I think a Sportco barrel would have enough meat to thread for a II** action.

    You could try WTB ads here, on CGN, on GOC.
    Might turn up parts.
    Keep in mind that if the Gov't follows through with its campaign promises, the project will be a no-go.

    Mk. III rifles have conventional right hand square threads, so it would be possible for barrels to be set back and rechambered.
    The unusual barrel threads on Mk. II rifles (apart from II**) would...

    A gunsmith in New England used to install .308 barrels by using the original barrel stump as a bushing, so that is a possibility.
    I suppose a new barrel could be installed, if one could be found....

    I suspect that the shoulder of the barrel was relieved to relax the torque, and make the barrel easier to remove. Mk. III Rosses and P'14/M1917 Enfields have a reputation being challenging to...

    Obviously a proper barrel vise and action wrench are required if a barrel is to be removed and replaced on a Mk. III rifle.
    Ross Mk. III barrels can be in tight.
