Sometimes even a rare gem gets over worked and loses its lustre and value. If it were mine, I'd invest in a repo scope/mount/cheek piece and buy a new set of furniture. But then, I love Enfields. And no, as far as I'm concerned, you didn't offend.

i do love a lively discussion , what it was and what it is seems to have been lost in time ,so many became a donor to the sporting world after the original intent , and there were those that converted well and those that did not , we have to remember these war veterans were turned to salvage and many that bought them intending to convert them to hunting rifles did not have the means some do today - they were making a "military working rife into a civilian working rifle" nothing more and nothing less , 

i am a military collector , im not into the conversions but i have no issue with well done items for discussion , now ill ad that i have no aversion to not well done conversions , they offer more discussions , im not buying them but i understand those that did and do , if my father had bought one after the war to turn into a 'deer rifle' i might understand better but he didn't - he bought collectors for a few bucks and im now continuing that , i do believe that if my family still lived in its roots we might have done it without hesitation for sustenance ,
