I picked this up over the weekend. It has 4 inches cut off the barrel, and the forestock cut and reshaped to look original, and it does mount a bayonet correctly. It had the black shiny paint on it like many of the 2A Enfields have, the usual 40% is already flaked off, 50% comes off with a few strokes of 0000 steel wool, and the last 10% needs to be chiseled off. So I took it out of the stock and took care of the flakey paint. Bluing is 90%. The fit and shaping of the wood is as good as the original. Second pic compares the original (top rifle) with the cut down rifle (bottom). Third pic is closeup of the cut down rifle. More than likely it was a skilled Bubba with a bad choice of paint. Or, an experiment done in India. Or, maybe it is a very rare U.S. model 1917 "Bushmaster". A dealer at the show put a muzzle gauge in it and it read a 1. I checked it with my Forster field gauge, and it barely engages the lugs on closing. Hopefully it is a good shooter. EDINOH.
