The first gun I ever smithed was a No 4 Enfield. It had a broken extractor and I had to replace the bolt head--really an easy job.
I thought it was just an old piece of junk until I took it to the range. It shot just over mintue-of-angle, and I knew I had a keeper. Somebody had already done a kitchen table sporter job on it, so I finished the job and made it nice. I eventually gave that gun to my brother. I still recognize the sound when I hear it in the north woods.
