    I wondered about that. I know there are two types of nose-cap bolt. I better have a look for the smaller type in my spares. Thanks.:thup:

    Being a restored sporter, it didn't have its original nose-cap. The one fitted is I suspect a recent-ish Indian version. I am looking for a more appropriate version with the stacking swivel point. I...

    One of the interesting parts of the rifle that I've not seen before is the foresight post. Is this a post service life modification?

    Hi Bindi2,
    Yes, I intend to get the draws right before I go shooting. The stock is all walnut, so it will have a bit of life in it. It's not that Australian coachwood that I've read about. Having...

    I should add that the stock set is one of Ralph Shaw's excellent reproductions. :thup:

    LSA Co Ltd No III restored.

    Picked up a sporter on the weekend that was calling to me. I've done a couple of No4 restorations, but not a SMLE. I've got to say it was a real challenge, and took a lot of hours to get sort of...

    I have a Kodak Ltd No32 MkI scope and mount Number 6677 with rifle number AV2240 on mount. It came with a No8 MkI case to scope 3771 rifle No 18455.

    I should add that the rifle number AV2240 is on the scope mount, presumably the original rifle the scope was issued to.

    Hi Seaforth72,
    I've just acquired a No 32 Mk1 scope from the Netherlands. It is a Kodak Ltd 1941 dated scope no 6677. It came in a No8 Mk 1 case that is also dated 1941, but numbered to a rifle...

    Strong lass that can fire from the hip like that without a sling! Someone also needs to show her the carry handle locked to the side feature as well. :wave:

    Star Wars MKI Bren!

    Apologies if if this has been posted already, but just saw this promo poster for the Mandalorian, which features most of a MkI Bren. I'm pleased that the new Disney owners of the Star Wars franchise...

    I've had good success with leather dyes to match wood sets lately. Having said that, the dyes will cost you more than the wood uppers, so unless you intend to restore a few sporters...

    Randy A, I restore old sporters for fun, and it is seldom going to make me much money if I resell. However, the process is extremely enjoyable and worthwhile for other reasons IMO.

    I'd like to know where you folks are finding full wood un-sporterized No 1 MkIIIs for less than $275 + $350. In Canada, at least I'd be paying $900-1200 for these. Perhaps not "economical" to restore...

    If it has new wood, which it certainly looks like, and it has been bedded correctly, you won't need recoil blocks. For what it's worth, none of my Lee Enfields have them fitted. What I'm learning is...

    Thanks Peter, I think I've got it sorted now. A longer bolt was inserted, which doesn't look exactly the same, but once blued, you barely notice the difference. Being Canada, it's Robertson, not slot...

    That's great thanks. Yes, it seems oversized compared to my other rifles. I had to go to the hardware store to find a 2" bolt.
