    Anone know where I might find the stock bands and a buttplate that wont cost more than I paid for the rifle? I got this no4 mk1 from local pawn just because my grandpa had one once. The one I got was sorta sporterized as someone cut off about 6 inches of the stock and threw the handguards and metal away. Then gave it a krylon camo job top to bottom. I can only guess from the dirt inside they left it in a mud puddle till good and dry and then sold it. My buddy at the pawn shop called and Asked if I would be interested in it and I got it for $100, juts got a stock set on ebay for $35 and I want to bring it back to as original as possible. It cleaned up nice and shoots like a dream. Thanks.
