This is one I'd never heard of, and it is not in Skennerton's bible either!
Based on No4T and fitted with a 7,62 target barrel and one piece stock. Apparently a top quality target rifle in the mid seventies.
Have a look!

While it's not pretty, it still seems good value for a quality target rifle. 
It'll never be put back as a T because of the wrist milled offCry
It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice!

I remember seeing a few of them at Bisley.
It was a bit of a fad, trying to make a one piece Mauser type stock for competition. I don't think it ever became "mainstream" though.

I have a no1 set in a one piece stock that was done in the sixtys. google shows a few so i know it was a company doing it. sad though because they hack them up so bad getting them into the stock. i bought mine based off the fact it was chambered in 303 and its the best feeling rifle to pull up and aim with ive ever held. i assume its randomly setup perfect for me with the lengths and distances of the rifle stock

but it looks nothing like the one you posted. wow looks good but they should have used a regular  no4mk1
