I understood your comment HT. I just meant that in his particular case,no amount of bobbing his barrel will help. Reminds me of the time I was working on a 66' Plymouth Belvedere that the owner had just smoked the engine on.It was a basket case. The owner asked me what he should do to fix his issues.  I noticed that he had put a brand new radiator cap on his junked radiator. I suggested that he jack the radiator cap up and park a new car under it... Salvage the furniture and metal bits and park a workable barreled receiver in it...

Thanks for the speedy reply to my post. There is not a"D.P." marking or stamp that I can find and I've been over the rifle pretty thoroughly while cleaning the cosmoline off. I will definitely have it looked at before I go any further. I'll take it up to my local gunsmith and have him inspect it.


If you have it looked at make sure that the gunsmith is experienced with Enfield rifles.
Good luck.

I really appreciate everyone's helpful input. Had a friend who knows these rifles inspect it and he gave me the thumbs up. I popped the bolt from another Lee-Enfield rifle I own in the receiver, tied the rifle to a stout table, procured a long string and fired it. I ran ten rounds through it with no problems. Nevertheless, this one might just be more of a wall hanger than a shooter for me. I own another No4 MKI which is my go-to fun gun, so I won't be missing out.
Once again thanks to everyone for letting me pick your brains on the subject.

Cheers,
Yeoman
