They are beautiful rifles and extremely collectable... way out of my league! I do like the idea of owning a .22 from the WW2 era, especially one associated with the military. That's why I purchased a Model 82 Cooey military trainer. I found some blueprints on building a faux magazine for it. I assume to replicate the Lee Enfield No4. I wish you luck in your selling quest. Someone will pick up a piece of history.

HT, the Lithgow No2MkIV* are probably the best value for WWII .22 trainers.
Mine has come to France via the USA and J.Jorinco. Not sure how many trainer's went to the USA; but it's probably easier to find than a No8 or No7.
It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice!

The faux magazine was to imitate the FN SLR rifle when used by Canadian army cadets doing C1 rifle drill.

Its a wooden block screwed on. Allows for the hold where the rifle is carried by the pistol grip. Different than that of slope arms in Lee Enfield drill.

Look to your front, mark your target when it comes!

Thanks for the info on the wooden magazine. One less thing on my "too do" list!
