Hey guys I love the forum and figured I try put a few pics of mine! :)
The first 2 are Churchill no.4's and other is a old school Canuck sporter from back in the day!


Neat machining of the charger.

And my personal fav, Just got it a week ago!
Super short, handy and I think a Judd Ltd Ontario custom rifle stock!? I don't know nothing about except they made wood furniture.




Hope you enjoyed looking! Maybe post a few of yours?? :)

I have a soft spot for enfield sporters.have brought back a few from bubba land,
as to commercial rifles. I have golden state/sante fe examples two 1944 models
[cut down military stocks new sights nice blue job] a jungle made from a number 4
and a 44 supreme the fancy model.its done well, but not up to the churchill finish.
wish I could do pics im just not good at at. my goal for enfield sporters? a bsa lee speed. might have to sell some stuff for that one....

Oh man I would probably jump on a nice Sante fe sporter especially if it had the Japanese 5 round mag, those are nice and not seen very often in Canada.
Don't even get me started on the beauty of those old BSA lee speeds!

I'm really digging the beefy pistol grip and the scope, Thanks for nice pic :) I may have to scope one eventually! Maybe I'll try find a old Parker hale side scope mount or just pick up the newer made Williams's side mounts, as I like to have access to the iron sights just in case!

These are a couple I built. A 303 and a 400
 
 
I have got the correct magazine for the 303 since then though

Sometimes when we start with just an action there is not anything that could constitute even a start for an original although I have always wanted to put together/build and stock an originalstyled  MLE.

I left you a PM on NE hollowedpoint 
Thank you and they certainly do feel good in hand, are quick to mount and point where you look. Having had a few genuine Lee Speeds in hand , I really understood why they were so sought after in their hayday and are still held in high esteem today. While there are many differencies between many of the lee Speeds I was able to make a compromise pattern from the three that found their way into my shed at one time.  I have built them for a number of 303's a 35-303 and a 375x2 1/2 as well. I really do enjoy making these stock sets and have sent a few off to guys over the last couple of years.
