    Fitting a Lithgow H barrel to a no1 mk3* with a shotout barrel

    What is involved in fitting such a barrel please? Looks like the barrel groove may need to be opened up in the forestock? The rear sight fitted, so the barrel drilled and pinned for it?



    Also the rear sight body reamed?

    I would say all of the above. If memory serves, there is a thread or two on the topic here somewhere.
