Picked these up from another forum member ( thank you sir !) . Im thinking the peddle scheme rifle can be brought back, but not sure about the dispersal and the lithgow. I have some spare furniture so why not.

Now, pitting on the dispersal has me both concerned and curious . It seems like it was a reused receiver , built into a dispersal rifle in 1940, when everything was being thrown together . The black paint seems to be over the pitting. Would it be a FTR applied, like commercial post was BSA reworks, or would it be how it went out in 19140?

Comments welcomed.

(Yes milprileb , I know these are Ethipia level money pits)

My thought is, anything can be fixed, it just takes time and money. If you don’t plan on selling it and you can spare the funds and time searching for parts. I would do it.
Forgot to add thats how i keep getting more guns without the wife knowing, barreled receiver here, gun stock there...

Howdy y’all;
Interesting projects 👍
A question first any FTR or DP marks on the Lithgow anywhere?
MA/52 etc on the left side of the receiver?

The paint on the Dispersal looks Indian, the "665" on the chamber strikes me as such as well. My $.02 anyways.
