These rifles had a linseed oil finish applied at the time of manufacture I believe, no varnish. These come up on auction sites fairly regularly but go for big money usually. I bought 3 for $275 apiece in the 90s.
Now the coolest Enfield though is the No5 Mk1, you need one of these also for your budding collection.
