Is it fixable, sure worst case you replace the cocking piece & the firing pin & fit for correct protrusion.
Hmm ok. Is it just me or does that cocking piece look a bit odd? Maybe it has to do with being a serviced one? (I'm new to this but I'm trying ) Also kinda looks like a type D I found online.

The one Enfield I definitely wouldn't mind spending a little money on would be a trials rifle.

the mkV ? they show up from time to time , there were 20K of these produced , it is a fact that lots got issued after dunkirk to resupply , but i know of some excellent examples and save for the coin in mine where the marking disc belongs she is complete and correct , 

the mkVI is actually a transitional rifle , there are not so many of those to find , these are forerunner of the no4 with little changes like the stock checkering to give them away ,

Slightly off topic, but I'd like to see pics of some others' favorite enfields in their collection if you guys have linked them in the past somewhere.

Looking at the photo of the cocking piece; I assume the tip of the firing pin has been reworked and the pin has been unscrewed one thread to make up the lost material.  Best to replace the firing pin.
It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice!

Update: Drove two hours after having set up this meet a week in advance to only learn that the dude flaked. He never showed up. I had to drive two hours home empty-handed.

See this thread about using a mismatched bolt that has not been properly set up to the receiver.
 
It is not anywhere near as simple as just sticking any old bolt in an heading off to the range.

Those bottom two are nice. What do you guys think about FTR rifles? Have the opportunity to buy one for 500.

Thanks for that link Bill! This completely changed the way I look at these rifles. A couple hundred bucks is definitely not worth a lifetime without half my face.
