Those both look nice. On the No 5, did you get an original bayonet or a reproduction?

the rifle came with an 1947 Poole bayonet.
that is a periodic correct bayonet.

I also have an BSA No.5 bayonet. but that one is not really good. some parts are loose and look like fitted parts of an L1A1 bayonet. (not sure).

I dont mind the Ishy screw. It is something special. I want to have a complete collection of as many lee enfields as possible. Including the ishy screw. I have an no4 and no.5 with ishy screw now. So i can place them in a corner of the roomLOL.

Terry, I think you should open a museum mate!
I love seeing your collection; that full SMLE skeleton is fabulous!

Zed/Hoadie, Glad you find my photos interesting.  Here are some more of the skeletonised SMLE.  Unfortunately,  a lot of my collection does not fit in here.
