LRF,
Maybe you could do a Lee Speed after the single shot. As many SMLEs as were "sporterized" during the 1960s and 70s, surely there is a donor action somewhere that has already been removed from collector category and hiding in a pawnshop somewhere.

Mike I hear you, however most of the SMLE's in whatever condition are not suitable for conversion to be a Lee-Speed clone. There are a number of reasons the most significant being the clip bridge and therefore a lack of the dust cover. One might say just remove the clip bridge however the scar left with it's removal are not easily overcome. The lack of a dust cover is not the end of the world but it was a significant addition to the LS look.
Now if anyone has a Lee-Enfield with the proper attributes or sees one being offered I sure would appreciate being informed, probably via PM.
Thanks

LRF,
I understand. It is very much a disadvantage to not be able to hold life's precious things in your own hands so you can appreciate the details.

I had a Lee Speed from the factory in 8x50R. Fine shooter. Should have kept it.

FYI, I got a Lee Speed today at the gunshow in Sioux Falls today. Not a donor but a very nice collector, so no project here but it is sweet. WW Greener was the maker. I'll post pics in a day or so in a new thread. I am quite pumped over the purchase. I should be all ready to go Lion hunting soon smile LOL

Great to see Dan Hudson and his Officer model Trapdoors and Bob and his wonder gun making abilities at the show. i truly wish I was half the craftsman he is. Seriously!
