    lee enfield no1 MKIII * restoration




    I just wanted to show off my 1916 no1 MK III * I just got it all done. I found some new CNC wood that had to be hand fitted. with help from you fellows I found "Brian Dickicon" here in SC he put on a new old stock Indian barrel for me that I bought from sarco. I found the rifle in a pawn shop in a plastic stock and missing parts including a safety. I found all my parts at BRP corp in GA, the gun shoots very good just about 4in high at 100 yds. with my handload. I need to find a taller front sight. it is shown beside my 1954 no4 mk2 faz. I restored a while back with new old stock walnut wood and a fresh paint job. anyway thanks for setting me up with Brian Dick he is the man,,,,,,,,,,,

    Olskool, Nice job (it always seems to take longer than than you plan for but is very satisfying when your done). I also used BRP parts for a No4 MkI that I restored. Thanks for posting the clear pictures also. Salt Flatl
