You are welcome. I have purchased LE wood from Liberty Tree Collectors: https://www.libertytreecollectors.co...?idCategory=63
Very reasonable (IMHO), and they even shipped to me in Canada, no problem.

I see I have to do some research also. A friend has a No. 7 that I shot a while back, really nice rifle.

My wife learned to shoot in cadets with some sort of LE trainer or conversion. She was more concerned with shooting than she was with the rifle's pedigree, unfortunately.

For 22 trainers, the British/English origins go back to the Morris tube conversions used in the Martini action. 297/230 Morris Short, or Long. A 22 cal BP centrefire cartridge with ballistics similar to the 22 Long.
They moved on to specific 22 trainers like the No2 Mk4, No8, No9 (like a No4 Mk1). Let's not forget the Canadian Cooey, the US Mosberg, et al.
There's a whole new rabbit hole to jump into, if you like 22s.
Oh, and don't forget the commisioned, but never issued, Kimber 82G.
And yes, this site is a good place for lots of "stuff" https://rifleman.org.uk/Enfield_Rifl...rison_page.htm

You.re absolutely right about that rabbit hole. I started with one and now have 16. If I can.t find what I.m looking for i make a clone. My Long Branch .22 clone with a sleeve shoots reasonably good so I.m satisfied and starting a Berthier carbine .22 clone. Here.s a test target from the Long Branch No 7 clone.

that site is an excellent source of inf , they forgot to mention a number of trainers that one might find but the one that jumped out was the cooey canadian Mod 82 most date to 44-45 and with the full wood have fron rear and optional peep sight that simulate either the no1 or no4 rifles , most you find are in excellent condition and shoot very well too ,

Web Site MIA

Does anyone know where the rifleman.org.uk web site has gone? All I see is 404 Error when I try to click on it.

sorry guys, need some clarification. From the discussion, it sounds like there was never an "official" enfield .22 trainer, as say, a counterpart to the winder or m1922. Is that correct? I'd be interested in picking one up if they were made, but I did not think they were. Please confirm/correct my understanding. Merry Christmas!

Yes, there were a number of "official" Enfield trainers, based both on the No.1 and No.4 rifles.

Very nice! I have one of the India rifles with a No4(sort of)rear sight as well as one of the NZ trainers that someone sadly tried to change it back to a No2 MkIV(now it has a Lane rear sight). I love the No7? They.re just out of my price range. Maybe some day though.

The conversion kits from GunParts Corp. are made up for them and when sold out they order a replacement batch to sell . They list them for under $200.00 on their web site when they in stock . Keep a eye on E-BAY for No.4 .22 cal. bolt heads they pop up now and then . My conversion kit works well in my No. III or the No.4 rifles . They produce inch groups at 50 yards using the bucket ammo. Some guys buy the kits from GunParts and resell them on Gun Broker for $500.00 !!

That is so true about the price. I only had concentricity issues with mine which was corrected in 5 min in the lathe. Additionally I made my own .22 bolt head for the No4. Certainly was easy enough. I used the knowledge gained to build a C No7 clone to which I added a PH4 rear site and its a real tack driver.
