The wood pile fore end looks like a No8, but the stock is different. Is that for an Envoy?

hmmmmmm , love the smell of hoppes and a lot of other old items we almost cant find anymore - acetone , malathione [it killed myroach infestation in the 70s] , creasote [my father made me paint it on his deck in the 60s] , and so many more .........

Hoppe's had the same stuff they used to put in race fuel so they banned it. New stuff doesn't smell the same. Close but less effective cleaner. SAD but then you are now protected from your self.

............Thumbs Up............

Not up to your level but here's some of my bits & bobs.
The cleaning jag on the left is the only one like that I've ever seen this side of the pond.

Shamu nice roll of 2X4. Wish I could find some. A 10 foot roll from Canada was $40 a few years ago.

I just got an MA marked oiler but not as polished as yours.

Cheers

I actually have 2, one in the butt of the No4, the other in the No1 Mk3. Not technically correct but the later Bakelite & plastic ones crack & leak, the brass ones don't.

Then there's this little toy, the "adult lawn darts adapter"!

Sorry but no. I don't use the SARCO brackets even though I have two on hand. I do have and use several of Roger Payne's fine brackets as they require little or no fitting.

I believe I sent you the answer and noted PM sent in a previous post.

...Cheers..

Not Enfield in the strictest sense of the word, but it does take a Bayonet so. . .

A pukkah Sirhind tool with mine probing attachment.

& then there's the street-legal hunting magazine.

I have six five round magazines for some reason and one made from an L42 magazine. Nice E-tool by the way.



Always handy to have extras.

Cheers
