Milsurp you got a nice lookin lady too. The sling is leather & rivetted from armory. The wandering zero maybe just flinching but did have to move the front sight so bring brass punch & hammer to shoot. The bayonets for these things cost more than rifle & harder to find than hens teeth. Mickey

ima has some repro,s for the bayo but i hate to put a repro anything on such a nice rifle.may have to live without a bayo, but just wondered what is correct strap for the n05 will a normal enfeild sling work?

That is a good looking No.5, and C3 is right, there is NO such thing as a unfired Enfield, so go out & shoot & enjoy................

About the sling just not sure if regular web sling is to long, only seen these 5's with leather like mine or without like yours. But when you do fire it , if you have a safe place to burn one at night do it you'll love the fire ball. LOL. Mickey

Shooting it once in awhile at the range won't hurt it or diminish it's value. Though not as comfortable to shoot as say a No4 MkI they are still fun and can be surprisingly accurate. Having a BSA Shirley is frosting on the cake since most were made at Fazackerly. All mine have been Fazackerlys, one day I'll snag a BSA like yours.
