Info on Enfield No 1 Mk 1
 
I just got my hands on a sporter style Enfield No 1 Mk 1 and am looking for info and parts to restore it to close to original. It seems that the number produced from 1902 to 1906 was relatively small and the attrition rate leaves few survivors and very little info so far. Youtube has a couple videos that have helped me some, but now I am looking for sources of parts. Has anyone got good ideas on where to direct my search? Thanks in advance.

Ask .303 Tom, he can tell you anything you could possibly want to know about Enfields.

I bought a No.4 MK2 just b4 Xmas. 303 is the go to guy, but many will help.
Wikipedia will give you a basic history on how the models evolved.
Search your model and you will get all kinds of sites. There is no one stop shop. I got a bayonet,sling, spare mag, stripper clips, etc, all from different places. All were original.
Some of th places I visited, many from .303.
