On another note... I do have a pristine No4 Mk1 reciever and barrel. Lee Speeds are basically Sporters, albeit high end. Could you make the furniture for this hardware in an exotic wood? If possible, could you post some of your works on other rifles/shotguns? It might be cool to build a No4 with a P-H aperture sight and a five round magazine with hand crafted furniture in exotic wood! My curiousity is piqued... thanks!

As I mentioned, I had no idea a custom stock was that much. There are many examples of excellent Sporters on this forum. I guess my walnut Bishop Sporter stock will remain my "exotic" wood rifle! No4 hardware in good shooting condition can usually be picked up for $150-$200 in my neck of the woods. Finding an after market Sporter wood stock is getting tough, and many people around here use products like ATI. I'm not aware of any company producing walnut Sporter stocks... pity...

 You should take a No1Mk111, No1Mk111*,No4Mk1,No4Mk2,and a  No5Mk1 furniture set and make a batch of reproduction sets using Beech and or Walnut, nothing fancy. Also using an ATI composite set, run a batch using the same wood as mentioned above. There is a definite market for full wood and sporter furniture for the Lee Enfield and if you have the skill set you mentioned and are willing to make some added income, this would pan out for you exponentially...

I have thought about trying my hand at stock making. What tools would I need if I were to get serious about it?

Goosic. I had the same thought. He could use the ATI as a template. Jsincopey, I'll bet there would be a bigger market for these wood Sporter Enfield stocks than for Mausers!

tools are
Not expensive .. lol I use a rasp ... a band saw .. chisel... lamp for smoking and fitting metal into wood .. some sand paper .. cheering tools ... and a whole pile of knowledge through trail and error lol .. I have a duplicator but that was not needed I do all my stuff by hand now.. just turns out better.. there is no such thing as a duplicator that produces a finished stock that actually fits... most on this machine turn out smaller than pattern .. waste of time and money . Better to hand fit the whole thing ..

In my opinion, for a Lee Speed, any nicely grained wood suffices. It's in the detail (checkering, fit, elegant lines) that set these Sporters apart from regular hunting firearms at the time. Of course, being used in Africa and India might make a native wood from either of these countries appropriate!
