    Mk II with a WS base?

    Hello,

    Curious if anyone can ID this scope base found on a Mk II sitting in a US marked stock (no NY marks). This seems to be a different variant to what I've seen in photos used on the Mk III's although it has the same idea. It does seem like it would fit a WS musket sight though.

    Any ideas on its origins?

    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.

    It does not look correct to me, screws much too small and finish looks new. Stop cut looks drilled and overall machining is very poor. Most possibly someone did a reproduction based on pictures and even used a wrong rifle.

    It's very poorly done fake of a combination that never existed.

    I would treat the seller's other listings with extra caution from now on.
    “There are invisible rulers who control the destinies of millions. It is not generally realized to what extent the words and actions of our most influential public men are dictated by shrewd persons operating behind the scenes.”

    Edward Bernays, 1928

    Much changes, much remains the same.
