How about some pics.
Gander mountain here in Erie Pa. Price these Enfields @ $400 + but they don't have a clue. A #1 mk 3 in nice condition all origional at $375 and one that's bubbed for $459. <<<< not a clue!!!
I appreciate the offer but i couldnt bring myself to part with any of this rifle. When i was in my teens then again in my early 20's I sporterized a 8mm Mauser and then screwed up a 303 that had peep sights because i didnt favor the peeps. I joined a club in England that gave me info on getting the history on my rifle and also downloaded ballistic charts long range charts and alot of other useful info and the UK manual on it. The aftermarket stock was to lighten it and allow me to not blemish the wood although it is a tough customer. One thing i have also noticed is that most of the 303's released were modified beyond repair. Mine was nice with matching numbers but it took quite awhile to get the packing gel out of everything and in warmer temps it bled it out for awhile. I thank you for the additional info and i might put it back together and put some pics on. Note i didnt sand it or do anything but clean it and shoot

Most of us here are glad you feel that way.My first gun was a Santa Fe Lee that was sporterized by a company named Golden State Arms. I did put a synthetic stock on it to replace the cut down origional. I have several milsurps of varying nations including more than a couple of Mosin 91/30s. although I don't value the Mosins as I do some of the others, I am at the finish of a non Bubba sporterization which I have enjoyed. I can completely restore it in a matter of minutes. Right now I have this little devil on one shoulder with a scope and mounts and his counterpart with all the origional parts and a screw driver on the other shoulder. I do have sporting rifles so I probably will never drill it, but my eyes arent getting younger and I would like to see just how accurate it can be.
