Does anyone recognize this 1917 Enfield sporter stock?
I'm wondering if it is a one of a kind custom, or a production piece. The rifle was apparently turned into a sporter in the 1950s. I kinda dig the old scope, too.



I was looking for a bare action to use for a new build. This old custom looks really nice. Like a time capsule from 60 years ago. I think I'll just restore the stock and bluing.

Thanks.

It looks like a Fajen or Bishop I once had on a 1917. beer roger


Old age is a high price to pay for maturity!!! Some never pay and some pay and never reap the reward. Wisdom comes with age! Sometimes age comes alone..

It is hard to tell because every aspiring gun builder or kid taking woodworking in shop class could order one and "finish it" the way they wanted.


Anyone who claims the 30-06 is ineffective has either not tried one, or is unwittingly commenting on their own marksmanship

The grip and cheekpiece remind me of Bishop.
