    browningautorifleicon - I believe the stock is Italianicon walnut and the handguard may be American black-walnut. It is rather hard to tell because the wood has been stained and some type of finish has been applied.

    IMHO - The grain in the wrist suggests Italian walnut.

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.

    Thank you for all the comments. I have done a cursory tear down and it appears that the same care was taken to refinishing all metal pieces hidden by the stock as well. It appears that it was likely completed a while back. The oil residue underneath the bands has had time to dry up and begin to gel. The goal is to tear it and a 1917 from the same auction down and give them a good cleaning.

    I just wondered as it looks different from what I've seen in Krags past.

    It's absolutely gorgeous! My sons would tell me that it looks like it would have when I served in the 1899 Army
