Looks like you nailed it Goosic. Fajen. Would that be just the woodwork or did they also convert the rifle?
Barrel and front sight etc!
It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice!

Fajen just made stocks that I am aware of.
The rear sight looks just like an aftermarket Williams sight as well.

Yup, Fajen was exclusively a stock maker. & that does look like a Williams ramp & sight.

"Bubba" is both the individual that sporterizes old milsurps, or otherwise hacks on guns, with no skill and all the wrong tools, and also the guns he's chopped up. Sometimes it's reversible, sometimes it can be salvaged into a nice sporter, and sometimes it's just completely toast.

Your builds are just too pretty for you to be a Bubba, sorry! You need more dremel gouges, Krylon paint and wood screws driven into metal to qualify. Maybe a grind to fit recoil pad stuck on without a grinder too.

He's not a real Bubba!
Bubba sits under a shade tree (Because his long-suffering wife has driven him from the house because of the strange smells),  with a blunt, rusty penknife, a dull hacksaw & a broken Dremel.
Then he builds some fantasmagorical Frankenrifle finished with rattle can paint & "features" that no-one else can comprehend a purpose for. Large blobby globs of some unknown "glue" (or is it weld?) are his trademark. In his own twisted mind he is "THE WORLD'S GREATEST LIVING GUNSMIFF"!

They mixed a solid project in with those Bubbas! Those Enfields are smoke grenade discharger builds. A guy in the UK did a bunch of them.

Preparations done prior to the actual builds with a measure six times cut once attitude. I have been connected to the No4 Enfield is some way or another for 42 years now and started and completed my first rebuild 34 years ago. Alot of trials and errors along the way unfortunately.  But those casualties that were the results of my own doing are the reason I can now do what I do seemingly overnight...
