My Christmas Rifles

Heres my 2 Christmas rifles:
U.S. Savage Enfield No.4 MkI 1943

Turkish Mauser 1893 with original bluing and arabic inscriptions/makings, stock refinished by me with BLO and Tung oil (it was so oily, dirty and grungy it was jet black, my first attempt at "proper" milsurp stock refinishing)

LOTS of ammo for each is on its way.Hopefully the rain will top someday so I can shoot them.:)

Does anyone know what the correct buttstok cleaning kit for the Savage Enfields is, and an idea on where to get one? The ONLY mention of cleaning kits at all I can find is a pull-through type listed on Numrich's.The buttstock has a large opening and a smaler one next to it that would appear to be for a cleaning ROD.Did they use a rod, or pull-through, or both? Anyone know what the correct kit is for these? Any hints where to find one if its the rod type (as Numrich's sells the pull-throughs)?

Thanks in advace.

The only item for the "cleaning kit" is the pull through. No cleaning rod was ever producd for the Enfield. The rope of the pull through goes in the big chamber and the brass weight goes in the small hole.

Purty stock on the Savage!

You need a sling for that bad boy.

That Savage Enfield is purty. Real nice grain in that wood. Now if you can get a proper sling and the pull through.:cool:

Pull-through is on order, as is an original sling.:) Thanks for the compliments on the wood, also.Wish I could take credit, but thats how I got it from SOG.I didnt do a single thing to it other than a quick wipe-down.Bluing is excellent on the rifle itself.(the mag and bayo sheath are kinda rough, but thats not much of a concern to me really). I am VERY happy with it for $170. 100 rounds of ammo arrived yesterday.Hope to take it out thursday, weather permitting.
