    A 1986 is also listed as A 1689 later in their listing. Obviously one is wrong but RIA only show one photo and it does not show the SN.

    I'm the one that's adding A1463 to my Enfield family. Looking forward to having it in hand in hopefully about a week!

    I hate being the bad guy. A1463 is a garage rebuild job. Pads, barrel, furniture all replaced. Pic's of her original appearance from my records. Sorry....

    I too was questioning the possible typo, so I asked for more photo's. Unfortunately, too fishy for me.

    Rifle s/n matches bolt. Scope mount (renumbered during FTR) matches scope case. Scope case not original to anything but paired up during preservation for storage by "Ball" (which is ok too). Scope s/n stamped into butt.....bubba??

    Too many inconsistencies for my dollar.

    Eh, not the end of the world. I didn't pay much for it and it'll do to fill the trials rifle gap (at least the receiver!) until I find a proper one. Will be picking it up next Friday.

    Assume you decided to return it? It just re-sold:

Also, the stock had a very odd rough texture to it and the pistol grip didn't feel shaped properly. Certainly unlike any of my other No. 4's in both texture and shape. I have no idea what was going on there. The pads had certainly been remounted and looked like someone had been after the screws on the forward pad with a punch.
