New member to the forum from St. Paul, MN.  I acquired recently a 1918 No. 1 MKIII King George V Enfield with a nylon stock but military front and rear sights installed and with all matching serial numbers including the magazine.  Too bad it doesn't have the military wood and hardware.  Bore is in excellent condition and the Enfield was packed in grease when I acquired it and now all cleaned up.  I'll be posting questions down the road.

welcome...your rifle sounds like a clone of mine.1918 enfield all metal very good in a plastic stock, I posted this on another topic recently, I just received my springfield sporters dp stock,I went with the birch/beech walnut is also available.its dirty and greasey but overall usable. being that it is never going to be original, Im not worried about markings so it will get cleaned up pretty well. should be a nice looking rifle.also I wont worry about the little bit of modification needed to mount the sk scope base.also order the metal parts needed.

Here's a few pics with new Boyds laminated nutmeg stock and forearm.  It took some major inletting mods with my Dremil to the forearm to get it to drop in, contrary to their "minor fitting" statement. Overall it sure adds more character than the black sythetic ATI stock that came with it for a sportized version.

Yes the "Minor Fitting" is a bit of a misnomer with Boyds. I had the same issue with my #5.

My biggest negative was with their CS department after spending over a week of sending pics and measurements so they could determine if it was returnable or not.  Then I was informed I could return only the forearm but only for a replacement and if I wanted a refund I would be socked with their 12% restocking fee and the butt stock was not returnable because they considered it "customized" since I had ordered it with their rubber recoil pad.  That was water over the dam by then since I had already fitted the forearm and butt stock to my Enfield.  Afterwards I replied negatively of the craftsmanship and customer service they credited my account for free shipping on my next order.  DUH???

LOL!!  Its good Hoadie , the Force carb is for carbonating the beer , and the Dunkle Wiessen is only 4.4 ABV !!!  So we can drink all day and still walk to the house !!!! Now the Amber ale , we dont know exactly what the ABV is , since we didnt have a hydrometer to test it when we brewed it !!
