    They get thoroughly cleaned, bore inspected for any serious pitting, bulges etc., & head spaced before I take them in........saves disappointment later.

    I know some people are offended by current civvy proof marks but it is an offence over here to transfer a firearm that is not in proof. I have long accepted it, it is just a legal requirement, end of. Mind you, if you ask the Proof House nicely they will often position the markings as discretely as they can.
    I regularly drop items in to London Proof House, their proof marks are quite discrete & a lot smaller than they used to be. I put an Early Luger in to then a few weeks ago & it was a struggle to find the Proof Marks, Charles there took the time to put them in places that didn't show

    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.  I will accept PayPal, Zelle, MO and good old checks (and cash if you want to stop by for a tour!).  CLICK BANNER to send me a PM for International pricing and shipping.

    I'll better not tell you how much the proof is over here since then you'd ask me the next time to get it done here before I ship something to you Simon ... .
