    Hi

    Photos of any markings on the barrel/action would be helpful........
    The left-hooker seems to have better wood and therefore likely more than just a 'standard' product - not sure many manufacturers produce(d) or even now do many left-hand.

    The other one, from the band at the grip and trigger) looks like a 'sporterised' Lee-Enfield, .303?

    I thought the same thing. the band is pretty .303 -ish (for lack of a better word) However the bolt and everythng else is completely differnt from my .303 ..

    I am not sure, but it can be a DAK product.

    It has vague similarities to a No.4 Enfield, but it's not. I'll go with Darra as well.

    Note the Mauser-style extractor and bolt release/ejector instead of the Enfield types.

    Interesting variation; the Mauser-style bits would have been much harder to make.

    The particular common markings on both these rifles are "D-R" which suggest that these rifles are made by the same one person, somwhere in DAK or Jandola (Waziristan). Will need some research and the simple way is the OLD DEALERS/USERS (Elders) and local manufacturers.

    It means guns are local made and no reason to buy them for use or decoration...

    Exactly, why molest a .303? Why not just leave it as is.. if if the action has gone bad (kinda difficult since they are tough buggers) simply pop in another .303 action.

    Why even go through the trouble to create this Frankenstein?
