 Rained today so thought I would try some inside pictures. Not too good, must refine my photography.
photo (5).JPG photo (7).JPG Fish on butt?
photo (8).JPG !885 Firozpor rondel, 1876 Enfield rondel, and I think a 3rd by the regimental markings, which is 1/17 no.859.
photo (10).JPG photo (4).JPG I've aggravated myself enough for today. Sorry for the bad pics.

Pictures are fine. I would post some if I knew how to get them from my phone to the computer.

Rifle looks pretty good too. Wonder what stories it could tell and places it has been to?

Nice early reciever (mkI upgraded to mkII).  Did you ever take a look at the barrel markings underneath the wood?

Has it been rebarreled? Enfield reciever mated with an lsa barrel(crown x inspector marks)

 Yes, I've had the barrel off. Lots of LSA stamps everywhere; lever, buttplate, butt, rear band. I'll get some more pictures when I can. I bought it off the guy who brought it back from Afghanistan.
