Got an idea while looking at high end rifles. I have a really good shooting No4 in an old Fajen Monte Carlo walnut stock. Shoot tons of deer with it. I forget what model of Blaser, but the had replaced the ball on the bolt handle with a similar sized walnut one. Looked kinda cool... maybe a little too much bling for my rifle....

I have a similar rifle, a LB 1945 sporter in a Fajen stock. My first Enfield from decades ago which has also harvested more deer than I can remember. I'll try find a photo of it in my archives.

Very nice! I'm guessing from the front site and bobbed barrel the original conversion was done by Parker-Hale? Does it have a five shot magazine? I had the exact same front site with hood on a similar rifle.

Indeed it came with a 5 round magazine. It has a PH front sight and PH scope mounts and rings. Whether PH built it or not, I have no idea, it could have been built by a competent after market shop. Either/or, this rifle shoots dead straight and is reliable. It prefers 150 grain hunting rounds.
