    Guys who are serious shooters that want a 7.62 Lee Enfield should buy or build one on a No.4 action that isn't worn out. Even then, you're stressing them to the max so you must adhere to the military...

    Oh yes. One example: I got a groin pull that took forever to heal since most were afraid to go to sick call! I had a mean blond hair, blue eyed E6 who nicknamed me Limp Dick. I was just getting...

    It looks honest and unmolested to me. A mismatch magazine is no big deal as long as it's fitted and functions correctly.
