    What happened after FTR.

    My no4 mk1 Faz has been FTR'ed. It is a very nice clean rifle. The metal is painted black and the stock has a very nice smooth finish, I would say semi-gloss. All the #'s match and the bore looks pretty good. I am curious as to what happened to rifles after they were FTR'ed. Would the stock be finished to such a high degree by the Britishicon armorers during the rebuild?

    Thanks

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.

    No, but it's possible the rifle got re-issued and some trooper rubbed it daily with linseed oilicon in a barracks over the years.

    It's also possible someone in civilian life has sanded and refinished the stock.

    Have any pics you can post for us to judge?
