I've been lurking around the boards soaking up info for the last few weeks while I snuck up on buying an Enfield. I ended up finding one I liked at Simpson Ltd/Collectors Firearms and it arrived this week. I'm heading to the range a little later today to see how it does.
Not only is this my first Enfield, it's my first WWII era type gun, and my first centerfire rifle. I'm planning on this being a shooter for target fun, so I'm hoping it's fairly accurate.
I slugged the barrel in anticipation of casting bullets. Maximum groove diameter by the 'rotate it to find the thickest point' method returned .314, so I'm hoping the Lyman 314299 will work. I'm still collecting the various tools for casting, so haven't actually dropped any bullets yet. Soon.
One question I have about care and feeding for the Enfield is what to use to clean and polish the stock. I don't intend to strip it or anything like that, and it's only very slightly tacky in a spot or two. Just looking for a recommendation for general cleaning and maintaining the current finish after cleanings.
