Dang, that is painful. People do strange things thinking they are making something better when all they are doing is taking 20 steps backwards.

I look forward to seeing the end result. Lucky you already have the parts for that one.
It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice!

so often the spiritof the moment over-rides our appreciation of the past , i was fortunate in that my father loved the origibals and forbade me chopping an old military arm , he because he appreciated where it had been and why it went there - me , well lets say it inspired a reason to read and understand as well as an appreciation of history and those that lived it , 

so often we think "its just an old bit" that was made in the millions - one day there will be very few left and we will wonder at our callous disregard , some of us already are that have those MKI*** we are trying to restore ........just sayin ,

I have several barreled receivers all in good condition but for the barrel bobbing. I have enough parts and wood to restore them to almost original condition but am limited by the number of barrels so the #4 MkII will in 7.62X51

The question is 'When was it done?'
Let us assume that the year is 1960 or thereabouts. You served in the British Comenwealth armed forces and you now want a rifle for deerstalking.
A No.4 to you would be a thing of a past maybe better forgotten but you are familiar with it. The answer is simple.
 
We cannot judge past actions by present values. If we did we would be shooting endangered species such as Tigers and Elephants.
That rifle looks nicely done and the owner must have been proud of his work.
Life.. a sexually transmitted condition that is invariably fatal.
