    Hey MJ, They do look purty and it looks like some nice straight grain. My No.4 Mk2 Faz had to have some serious clean-up. What do the codes say on the left side of the receiver? You said one's a '53 and the other's a '54... but I'm wondering where they were built.

    Where's the sickeningly green with envy smilie? Seriously, congratulations, those are beautiful.

    Those 'snipers' the real thing, or built up projects? Either way, very nice.

    About ten years ago, I came across a NIB No. 4 at a gun show, made in 1955 at Fazakerly and packed away. It was in the wrapper, loaded with cosmoline, and with a brand-new bayonet, for $200. I still have it, and still think it was one of the best buys I ever made.

    How on earth do you just randomly stumble upon a pair of unfired 50 year old British rifles?

    Man, life just isn't fair. I've never found random new guns... :(

    Thank you all very much for your compliments.

    :) There is a point in life when you have to enjoy what you have.

    The $99 Fuji has a lot of fun in it. I don't plan on changing my collection and may even trim it. I have a few projects the need to be finished, one is two years old, some old m1 from CMP receiver and a $89 parts set.. Butt your all too kind. Again thank you and you all enjoy your collecting. I think I have another itnterest growing.

    I think the only question in my future is what color.

    Is that a Savage by any chance, or a trials rifle? Not very many '41 T's out there, is why I ask. If it's Brit, does it have the Royal on the left of the butt socket?

    It's an Enfield #4 early production and yes I check them

    This is a 1942 Savage.

    Almost all my #4Ts have 0 or#1 bolt heads and are tight head space. Tehy all show ex. accuracy.

    MJ, those 2 new rifles you found, are they both PF serials?

    If so then thats pretty sweet that you had NIB PF serials.

    Nice Snipers btw. I'll try and put a pic of my pair up this weekend.
