he!!o all,
I made my first post over on the Enfield Rifle forum "Newbie with a ZF stamped stock" if anybody would like to help on that debacle.  However for this post I was wanting to know how and where to find reputable parts.  Do Enfields have a problem with fake parts similar to USGI M1 carbines?
Thanks

USGI carbines dont have a problem with "fake" parts , there are commercial parts for the commercial versions of the rifle - one needs to know the manufacturers and recognize the markings , unless a lot has changed in the 6-8 years since i sold all my US rifles they are not "fake" they are just  not GI 

yes , there are enfield reproductions and again , you need to know the markings and manufacturers , i dont think the parts to be fake just not NOS , there is some of that out there tho - in the original packages etc , 

the only "FAKE" stuff i know of really are the khyber pass rifles - they have not been hawking parts yet , but doesnt mean some unscrupulous person might not disassemble and sell off parts as originals - yet , again the markings should give them away , 

it is worth the effort to do the research to know what you are buying ,

The most popular would be the "Jungle Carbines", many are cut down No4 rifles. Then there are the "factory fakes" like the Indian No1 "Jungle Carbine" conversions. No such thing ever existed. Then there are the parts to fabricate them. "No5 Flash suppressors with a built in muzzle break", but the wrong internal diameter to fit, or reproduced Mk32 scopes & mounts as well.

Mostly its more subtle with the L-E than direct fakes, more like modifying something not-so-rare to become rare. D-I-Y No4Mk1(T) snipers being a case in point.

Things like bayonets are more commonly reproduced, for good or ill.

For genuine parts, E-bay has lots , many out of the UK, and NOS.

Case in point. The cheek rest,scope mount,and scope on this is all reproduction items. The rifle itself is all original though...

Question. I'm in the process of completing my numbers matching No 4 Mk 2 sniper clone. I realize it is not the real deal, nor would I advertise it as such. Doesn't matter to me. In my mind,it is a "representation" of the real thing. That being said, and not wanting to buy a real or replica Mk 2, scope, what would suffice on my "interpretation" piece? Currently sits an old Weaver 4x. Feel free to pile on...

Numrich Gun Parts would be a good start.

I'm in Canada. I've been checking out US sites and EBay. Not sure why but on alot of gun components, they won't ship to Canada. Has "the Donald" built a wall between us and the US I didn't hear about? And what about Free Trade? All kidding aside, I'm not sure why or when these came into place, but Numrich states they cannot send scopes to Canada.

Depending on what parts you are looking for, I have a lot of #4 parts and some #1 screws and such.

Go to eBay and type in the words, Enfield Sniper.
They should have a bunch of parts there.

i dont look at reproductions as "fakes" as long as they dont pretend to be originals , 

the commercial conversions of old rifles to 'fake' models is not too bothersome if they dont pretend to be originals either to me , 

there actually was a model of jungle carbine made from the no1 rifle - the no6 in OZ but only a few hundred actual trials rifles were made - they are very valuable items ,

HT: I cant remember how far Brandon is from a US crossing.(I know how far Emmerson is).

If its worth your while, have it sent to a mail/freight receiver there.Then go over & bring it back yourself. That's what I do..then again, I'm right on the border (Niagara Falls)

Actually, forgot about that option. I'm about an hour from the border. There's a farmer just on the US side that has a Quonset and you get your stuff mailed there. He let's you know when it's there. $10.00 for that service, I believe. When I was working, a guy at work would order stuff for other people all the time. Tires, rims,etc. Thanks for the brain bump!

You can legally import small arms ammo, as well - legally

The "no exports" is actually an Obama thing. Google "ITAR" for the gory details. ITAR was originally written to stop export of high tech proprietary US military equipment to potential enemies (Things like gen3 Night vision with the micro-channel plate), but it was "Reinterpreted" to include darn near everything arms related.
