    Bindi2 pointed out the metal misses a part, but also the stock on the left side has a half circular hole. The cut for the front portion of the stock was also not professionally done. I therefore had suspected it might got damaged when it got re-issued, the heavier damaged front handguard portion got removed and therefore then put aside since no parts for repair were available and survived this way in a rather untouched condition. But all just wild guess and thoughts.

    Magazine is simply removed, you could easily insert one. The swinging floorplate locks identically to the original magazine.

    Absolutely superb Georg, wonderful addition to your collection, like Jim I would love to see that one up close.

    I wouldn't touch or change a thing, just clean and oil!

    That's a very rare museum worthy piece....

    You can see that close as well, but given the new COVID variant UKicon developed I think we should maybe not look into this that early. Then you can touch it as well, even if you just said you wouldn't touch it .

    You tease ..............


    You know where I (and my No1) live, and you dare post that.
    Shame on you !
    Mine are not the best, but they are not too bad. I can think of lots of Enfields I'd rather have but instead of constantly striving for more, sometimes it's good to be satisfied with what one has...

    Are the Germanicon markings from WW1 or WW2? One of the Territorial battalions of the Leicester Reg was at Dunkirk in WW2.
