    Yes, aside from the additional screw holes, presumably for a civvy scope mount, the rifle is 'normal' for it's manufacturer & the time when it was manufactured. There are various little variations in...

    Your rifle has been around a bit, but is a nice piece & a little scarce, being a North American produced Mk1 rifle (rather than the much commoner Mk1*). It was made at the Canadian Long Branch...

    Don't worry, it's easily done. You might have been confusing RSA (Republic of South Africa) with the Royal Small Arms Factory (RSAF) Enfield Lock, the original 'home' of Enfields.........or...

    I think it's probably a Faz Mk2 as well. S'funny how one notices the same little machining idiosyncrasies that vary from factory to factory!

    I have seen that modification of the Mk1 forend so as...

    That's a universal problem when trying to get these old parts & accessories remade. They were made by very talented men & women, so can be made again, but at a price, & that price is often so high as...

    I've seen quite a few like that over the years.......often on No4 Mk1's over here that have been 'targetised'.

    Agree with post #6. It's not a Savage as it has an angled receiver side wall ledge, yet it also has the milled flat typical of BSA, Savage, & Faz production. I'm almost certain it is indeed a Faz...

    I've still got a few sets. Sold most of them, & only ever fitted one set to a rifle - it was a pig, even compared to a NOS set of wartime woodwork.
