    Iím just quoting what Iíve seen and itís very inconsistent. I will say that the body I just used to build up a complete rifle with a Criterion barrel had the US Property stamp removed but no distinct FTR markings. It was an original rifle with remnants of Suncorite paint present over where the markings are on the body so I donít think it was removed by a civilian owner. Possibly a country outside of Britainicon and the Commonwealth? These rifles were shipped everywhere post WW2 so one has to wonder.

    I forgot to mention itís restored with American birch, Canadianicon birch and English beech so I didnít worry about matching manufacture parts. I wanted it to be as original-rebuilt and it has parts representing all the countries that built No.4 rifles during wartime. All the wood is a good color match to spec and itís a very nice rifle. Shoots good too.

    Hi guys, I just got my hands on a sporterized No.4 Mk. 1* and, of course, the stock has been cut off. I have ordered a "cutoff tip" to try to make the repair. Has anyone here made a repair like this or know of anyone who has? I could use some tips. Trying to restore it to military configuration.

    It might be the chickens way out ... But I would probably just replace the forend to be honest.



    They are still available and not too expensive.
