    Patrick is absolutely correct. This applies to sniper rifles too. Some l;ooked like sewer pipes and had bores as smooth as a baby's bottom - but functioned perfectly and accurately. Others, with bright and shining bores would be brought in because they just would not group and would fail the basic sniper rifle accuracy test. That's the reason why all of the barrel gauging spec that went with the old No4's and T's were slowly discarded. The only tests were the barrel viewing criteria and the bore gauge must run. Following that, if the sniper was happy and it passed the accuracy test, all was well. L96's were a problem. Occasionally one couldn't hit a barn door if you were standing inside. New barrel - and it'd still be the same. Others with seemingly shot-out barrels were prize winners. Obviously the final arbiter was firing from the Layer that eliminated all human influence

    A gentle reminder to all........ if you click on the little blue info sign at the bottom of the post next to the thanks button......... unless the member has a scrambled IP address it will give you an idea of the location.

    Regarding the OP, There are a few who collect NZicon marked rifles, with it being in NZ I'm not up on the prices but looks a good rifle, must admit the bolt does stand out compared to the rest of the rifle and very much doubt it was changed in service, as it would of at least been re numbered to the rifle with the old number linshed off or barred out with XXXX.

    Many years ago I would of give it a home but now days and as much as I love Enfields I have to pass on them unless its a .22 or it has provision for an issued scope........

    Jim,
    We are all used to that mate......................they come onto the site without giving ANYTHING towards the cost to run it, glean the valuable information and leave. Seen it so often as Peter said, but we are afterall gentlemen and always available to help those genuine people.

    I don't know Jim, last time I was in NZicon, 18 years ago the pace had not quickened since my previous one which was 10 years before........
