I just picked up my Enfield NO 4. MK2 from my gunsmith. It now has the Lothar-Walther barrel installed along with a NOS #0 BSA bolt head and a Parker-Hale globe front sight to go along with the P/H rear sight. It sits between the sight protector ears. 

He tells me he had a heck of time bluing it. Apparently L/W's proprietary chrome molly steel must have a lot of chromium in it. 

Pictures to follow. I don't have any build pics but I'll show what I can.

Sounds nice! I'm sure I'll see from the pictures, but can you tell me how he mounted the front globe site? Thanks!

I’ll be very interested to hear how the rifle shoots.  What barrel was previously installed and how did it shoot?
