The box from Springfield Sporters arrived. The buttstock is blonde and unissued and it required a bit of fitting but I think I have it right. The wood just got a coat of Boiled linseed oil and I shall put the rifle together tomorrow, pictures to followSmile

Well I called Springfield Sporters and they said they have rest of the blonde wood I need. I received a box today with the metal 'bits and bobs' so by the end of the month I hope to be shooting it.Smile

The easiest way to tell them apart installed is the reinforcing method.

Are You talking about the cross bolt you see on the Ishys ????

Well I broke down and ordered a No4 Mk2 Forend figuring I would put the best looking one on the rifle. There was also  the possibility I would screw up the conversion of the Mk1 to Mk2.
 
 It arrived today and it is Blonde.
 
I am in love!Embarrassed
 
Now where can I get a blonde buttstock and handguards.

Whats the difference ??? I could go out to the Gun Shop and See if I may have what Your looking for and We could trade possibly ....  I just have never knew there was a difference till now ... Most of My No.4 wood is bought sight unseen and I dont really know what Im getting when I buy it ...

It's not that hard, actually. You'll need a hacksaw, a drill, and a sharp chisel. Look at pictures of post-war FTR'd MkI and MkI* rifles to see the patch they used for the conversion to Mk2.

And since the grain of the wood runs fore and aft, you'll need to do all the chisel work from behind (down, Hoadie!) so you don't mistakenly take out a chunk of wood you shouldn't.

No4 MkI*, Savage 1943,
FTR (F) 1954 Mk1/3
No4 Mk2 ROF(F) 5/50
No2A1 RFI 1966
