Lee Enfield no.4’s

Getting on with the Enfield builds at last, these two moving into stage 4, barrels to cut down end caps to fit on cylinder extension, then get them shooting. Butt plate, “wrist” band on receiver, along with top receiver parts, and front sight to make.

Made some butt plates today, near enough copy of original, which you can’t find very easy these days, and prices are always going up. Just a bit of 22 gauge steel knocked about on a wood former to get the shape.

Moved on a bit at last, receiver “superstructure” done, foresight to make, charge handle to shape, should then be close to finish, only about 3 months behind!

@dada-phlott , last year I priced these at about £350, buying donor guns from Taiwangun, but now, it’s not  really an advantage to get from abroad, you can still buy them cheap, but now the customs tax is a size 12 in the goolies, and the time and faffing around with UPS to get them delivered, so I’ve opted to buy from Patrol Base…..when they have them in stock, so the price has gone up a bit £375 for a no.4 the smle will be around the same price as long as I can fabricate the front cap, if I have to buy originals….more money!

  Have got a fair long waiting list at the moment, these ones should have been finished in March, but what with Covid and such like crap I’m behind in production.

Finished the first two at last, will be taking these to the WW2 show at Red Alert on Saturday 31st, have more to do, will also do some Smle types, I think everyone is waiting for the S&T Smle to arrive, but I’m still going to make some.
