The lands are still sharp and the grooves appear to be free of copper fouling...

Just my 2 cents...the serial numbers were under decades of crud, maybe under the original packing grease. Also the no.4 stock is so poorly fitted that someone who wanted to fake it as a jungle model would have left, or fitted another jungle butt stock to it...no?

A No5 furniture set, especially the buttstock is almost impossible to find nowadays. Your best bet is to find a better No4 buttstock.  You can find an ATI synthetic stockset online for the No4/5 if you can't find the right buttstock in the meantime.  There is a No5 buttstock on eBay right now but, the guy wants $268.00 for it...

kk. Thanks. But I have no gumption to rebuild this gun. I spend most of my time and money at the sporting clays courses.

I'll be putting it up for sale shortly I guess.

about 25kms north of orangeville. I'm retired so if anyone wants to see the rifle, I'm sure we can arrange something.

If you go 30 Kms north of Oran-geville you'll fall off the planet!

The gun was sold locally.

Thanks for all your insights and information. I'm glad to have held such a piece of history. Someone else will get it back into shooting shape.
