Basically any indepth information. Schematics, Parts lists and measurements. Why? I have been given a butchered No4 Mk1 with a .308 barrel. Stock is a throw-away. So instead of mucking around with an orginal No5 I would construct one. I know it is wrong in many eyes, but this was destined for the scrap metal bin anyway nothing matches up. I want to build it to close to spec's.Also I have another No4 coming my way that I want to restore.

You should probably check out photos of the No.4 conversions before deciding on using this rifle for your project.
 
Many conversions have no bayonet lugs so the lack of lugs is not a sign that the barrel has been cut down. Also some target versions have fore ends that can be mistaken for a sporterized no.4 fore end.
 
If the barrel is not full length then you probably aren't sacrificing a restorable No.4 conversion rifle so the carbine idea sounds good to go.
 
Remember that unless proofed for modern .308 loads its best to stick to ammo that generates no more than 48,000 CUP or 51,000 PSI, the equal of M-80 Ball ammunition.
 
PS
Commercial 7.62 conversions should bear markings of the company that did the work, but conversion kits were available here in the 90's so some rifles may have been converted by unqualified craftsmen.

If it has been proofed, it will have a circular stamp with the letters CAS on the left hand side of the action about where the charger bridge is.
This is the stamp that is applied at Lithgow.
Rifles without this stamp could not be used in official competitions.
