    To the extent there is much monkey business going on with Enfields, it's mainly involving the sniper rifles. I have seen some examples of scope and mount renumbering. But for most standard rifles,...

    Looks amazing. A few minutes with a MIG welder and it could be back in action, but who's the buyer for a kit like that? I assume someone with a SOT would be able to put it back together.

    I saw that BSW KKW. Think it went for about $850 before the premium. It was one of the few that had quite a bit of bidding action.

    That auction was pretty interesting to watch. I spent a few hours tuned in on Saturday. JM Davis obviously never saw a gun for sale he wouldn't buy. A lot of them sold for prices that I would...

    Shystering aside, that's a pretty impressive restoration job on the holes. Although looking at the before and after photos you can tell something was done to it.

    Regarding imports, I don't think we had a lot of arms trade on the commercial market with the Eastern Block nations prior to the fall of the Berlin Wall and collapse of USSR in the early 90s. Prior...

    No suffix that I can see. It's a five-digit SN: 21031. The rifle has also been sporterized many years ago so highly unlikely to have been humped.

    He definitely seems to attract some really "generous" bidders, but more power to him if they pay up. As a case in point, he's got an auction up now for 5 boxes of Wolf 7.62x54 ammo that is bid up to...
