OK mark03033 , Step back from the rifle !!! Take a deep breath calm down..  OK your in serious trouble .... sounds to Me You have Enfieldites.. Its a very bad desiese.  you will have problems with passing up any thing enfield wise at gun shows ... Oh My!   you sound like you have it bad too!!!
I suggest to go target practice with your Enfield at least 2 times a week  if no more.....
There is only therapy treatments for Enfieldites and no cure..
 
Now that you have admited to having it you now have to live with it and get another enfield and some MilSurp ammo ........

Mine was a 1945.It was only considered "better" cause it was a semi..by the by,its exempt from the magazine laws in Canada.
I suggest that you DO get one...oh yes,by all means-YES!Then you can learn all about M-1 Thumb
