I'll have to get pics of mine up sometime. Unfortunately it will be one light as I traded off my Martini-Enfield a little while back for some M95's :-?

I need to establish a new host site soon, been putting it off too long.
Posting images is the best way to illustrate anything one tries to explain about any mechanism.

And guns are very photogenic.

Nice, plenty of character but not beat up much if any. The way these should look.

Thanks

The Savage was a hard one to part with since it came out so nice but the other one was all original and when other rifles started calling my name the rebuild had to go.

I've only got one left, I ran into some financial trouble and had to sell off 90% of my girls but as soon as my daughter finds the camera i'll snap a few and post them.

my no4 mk2 from 1954 my no1 mk3* from 1916 I just finished restoring these guns. a man gave me the no4 the wood was toast, the paint was gone. the barrel was good. I found new old stock walnut furniture. it had to be fitted. I had no suncorite so I bead blasted and painted it with air brush matt gun kote blk. the no1 was in a plastic stock sitting in a pawn shop and missing parts, I got it cheap. the bore was gone. I found a new old stock barrel from sarco, I had an Enfield gunsmith here locally in SC install it, (Brian Dick) the no4 shoots great and I haven't shot the no1 yet,,,,,,,,,,,

Very nice job on both pieces. Gun Kote is just as durable as Cerakote when done properly.
