I bid on that really expensive No5Mk1 stock set and won it. No other person bid on it.  I am having an issue with my financial  institution currently that is not allowing me to purchase anything at this time,their end,not mine. I messaged this person twice to let him know that it would be advisable to just relist it. I can always try again at a later date. His course of action was to berate me with alot of colorful words.  No big deal there, I have heard worse. eBay customer service offered to assist with the purchase by overriding the technical glitch. I had them read the emails he sent me first. He is a borderline psychotic was what was said to me by the eBay customer service person. This is his eBay name and one of the items  he is listing.  Do not buy from this person. He is located in Timmons ON

160 dollars for a No3 bolt head! Holy crap!
It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice!

He over prices all his items by a large margin. I saw that listing as well and thought that a complete #5/MK1 rifle in very nice shape goes for that asking price of $750 all complete.

I would simply block him. I know about that guy as he is on social media as well on several FB Enfield sites.

Dont feel bad about this clown, hes a total d**k.
When I first saw his auction, I offered him $380 bucks just for the wood stateing his price was unrealistic, his reply to me was go f*** myself.......
I lodged a conplaint against him.

He does like to cuss. I was very diplomatic and suggested that he try offering the stock set to the folk on this site. His response was identical to the one you received with the added bonus of telling me that,and I quote. "Those people you mentioned wouldn't know their @$$ from a hole in the ground when it comes to what I have to offer."
Sad little man right there if you ask me...

No. 3 bolt heads do seem a bit scarce, but $160.00 !!!!?????  Yikes!!   I’m glad I don’t need one.  

Gone are the days that you could buy a great No. 4 for less than $30.00

Growing up in Phoenix, we had a store called Yellow Front.  In the sporting goods section they had three cardboard drums,each filled with Lee Enfield rifles. A $10.00,$15.00,and a $20.00 drum. I bought my very first No4Mk1 for $9.95. The clerk supplied the additional nickel to complete the purchase.  There was no sales tax on used military stuff in the store.

Zed don't forget to add the postage also $ 180.00 total.
in Australia add another $200 or so and you get the whole rifle.
find the bolt heads on Aussie ebay or "SSAA" website or "usedguns for sale".
I know what I like & like what I know.
