Having a few days off, ( plumber supposedly coming to do central heating) so I thought I’d catch up with stock prepping, four No.4’s and a No.5.-- attachment is not available --

Impressive work! Are you going to inlay something to represent the receiver/stock joint?

Rather than make a two section stock as per original, I opted for a one piece because of strength and of course ease of manufacture, I will recess the band area, and fashion a two piece metal band from a thinner piece of sheet, this will be easier to form. I’ve done this before and the result is good, but I may change the design.
I make as many pieces as I can, mainly to keep cost down, as original parts are now getting very expensive, they are not rare but prices are rising all the time. I’ve still yet to design the front sight piece yet, but I’ve got some idea what I want to do.

Haven’t been on here for a while, work had to stop on the Enfield’s as the weather took a turn for the worse, and I’ve just been through the Covid chaos. Not recommended at all! Recovery time is slow so maybe will get around to doing some rifle work by March.

At last got back to doing a bit on the Enfield stocks, pushed ahead with the no.5, more as a prototype than anything else, made trigger guard, “rubber” butt stock metal, top wood band, and started on the flash hider.

 Got the mag catch working, so now I can concentrate on the “bolt” extension to put charge handle on the correct place...or as near as dammit correct place.
