I am from South Dakota.  A gunsmith friend of mine recieved a sale brochure from a company that had bought a large lot from the Knoxville Armory and bought 4 rifles from the lot for his customers.  They shipped it direct from the armory.
 
As for my gunsmith friend,  he's a really nice guy, but the only thing I have against him is he's a Nagant fan....LOL.  Can't deal with him anymore since he moved to Missouri, but he can built beautiful rifles from those old Nagants.

......just thought I'd get this thread jumpstarted again.......I find it very hard to find any pics or info on LE sporter stocks. They all seem to be cut dowm mils or that old '70s style Parker Hale , monte carlo, triangular fore end style.
How about some decent looking stock to rival the mausers ??

       

          

I'd like a DGR/safari style stock for my 45-70 Mk 1/111 project.

The buttstock on the No.1 in the center is a really nice piece. I'd like to find one like it should I ever finish up my Lithgow sporter project rifle.
That No.1 looks like a factory, or custom gunmaker job, more refined than a home done job.

the only "project rifle" i have wont look too far from original arsenal configuration , and its not an enfield , it is actualy a "springfield" type rifle ,

i took a remington M1903A3 that had been bubba'd into an A4 forgery and converted it to 22cal , that because the bubba made some serious errors and turned the 3006 into an unsafe rifle just waiting to injure or maim some poor shooter ,

i like the idera of having the A4gery in my collection as ill never fork over for a real A4 and i like having
a functioning rifle , i also really like 22s

This is a Mk 111 I picked up and rebarrelled with a Mauser 7x57 barrel.Its as acquired except for the barrel.....

             

I used it like this for a few years, then the other day I got the bug to play with it a bit....

           

I picked up a scope mount at a gun show last weekend for $30, rings for $45 and the scpoes a Leupld m8 2.5x compact I got at a garage sale for........$5
I use standard S&B 7X57R in it.....still got some work to do on the stock ( fore end tip is felt marker.. ) and a buttplate, but its coming along

Are you my twin? A long-lost brother? Thinking on my frequency?


See here

I've acquired a Martini handguard since that photo was taken, and have yet to slim down the ebony endcap and pin it to the foreend.

Oh yes!  That is a worthwhile mod.  Here's one of mine.


That is a suppressor on the barrel.  The bore is so badly rust damaged it will only shoot with custom sized paper patch bullets.

This one has a new No4 barrel fitted.  I made that fore-end from a log - well, piece of walnut I bought.  I gave it a linseed oil finish.  It's my first 303 of 1902 vintage.  The action is untouched. (The scope mount is soft soldered on).

7x57 Lee Enfield.  Yes!  I've been toying with that idea for quite a while.

This is a neat rifle.
