All jokes a side . I would'nt take to a really good enfield to sporterize it these days ! They are becomeing a rarity to find a good one (even over here ) This is why I'm restoreing my Old Mk1 (1902 ) to it's former glory !

 Sporterizing is something that I'd try to talk someone out of , unless the rifle is so buggered up that sporting is the only way to save it.
However , it's up to the owner to make that decision . Thats his right and I'll respect that ....but I'll still have my say...Wink
Finding extra stocks is the best way to take care of that "need" to sporterize , without damaging an original rifle .
Here's my No4Mk1* Longbranch .
It's an all matching original that I can change the stocks out for whatever "mood" i'm in.

See what i mean! an Enfield still looks sweet in the sport furniture. but i will have one of each when i do sporterize any mill. surp. I do the same thing for shooters I keep the best in the gun case and shoot the beat up one/ mix matched Sr.#  and so forth.

How'd you get around the barrel length law? We tried EVERYTHINHG, flash supreesors, Flash supressors permantantly affixed, barrel lenghtening etc..no cigar.
