Speaking of Enfields, does anyone need a 1943 Lithgow that is in need of some TLC? It seems as if it was used as a police gun in some middle east country(?) and has a large yellow band of paint on the stock.
$150.00 plus shipping.

The yellow band is a cadet or training designation. It means the rifle was downgraded at somepoint from service to a non-frontline duty. That's not terrible, but for whatever reasons which may have even been fixed, the rifle was removed from service. The red stripe of "DP" or drill purpose only, is the mark of a gun you may not want to shoot. A cadet rifle will probably still be in fine function as a shooter.

Just an FYI.
