It screams All Original.

The stock colors are perfect matches.

Have head space checked. You can buy different size bolt heads if you need to correct HS.


PS: Leave that yellow paint on there. Character!!! And I know it's rude to ask, but..............$?

You did very well, price wise, in my opinion. I've seen them from a hundred lower to a hundred higher.

I haven't come across an SMLE yet that I would drop coin on. They're usually beat up with loose replacement stocks and trashed bores.

Not a doubt in my mind that I would have taken that piece home with me.

It also looks like there was white paint on the butt stock at one point as well. I can't tell if these little spots are transfer from another source or if it had a white sripe too.

All the wood seems to be in good shape everything is nice and tight.....no rattling and the bore looks good but I'll tell you that this is only my second 100 year old rifle the Mousin I bought had so much cosmoline in it that it looks new....

Nice Cadet rifle. The import mark on the right side of the receiver, does it say JJ?

Love those stock markings.

Never sand the wood. Just go through it mechanically, lube it up, and wipe it down.

Hell of a buy.

Where exactly would I find the import markings?
