Most of you know I have lots of projects and here is the updates:

Mk I***: I have everything but proper wood. So I am going to put it in Mk III* wood to get it in service again. I won't stop my search, just get rounds downrange.

1916 BSA Mk III*: This was bought as a bare body. I have all metal for it. I plan to send the body, bolt and barrel to be fitted and then finish it out.

No 4 projects: They are all on hold for now.

Pattern 14: I can buy a decent rifle much cheaper than I can build it so it is being sold.

That's the current status. Any and all comments are welcome.

hmmm , sounds like you have a plan and it seems solid to me , just curious , will the mkIII* wood be cut for the cutoff ? or do you have one that is a low wood in that location ?

I was fortunate to get a foreend that has clearance for the cutoff so I won't have to mess around with that. I was thinking of patching the area where the charger bridge fits so it doesn't look so goofy but I will have to think on that a little.

i like it , glad you dont have to mess about with that cut down for the cutoff  , you could try it without the patch for the charger bridge , 

ive had three gunroom projects sitting here in pieces and boxes for a while , i took two on this weekend - ill not get them done but ive put a large dent in the list of things needing to be done , i can see the progress - my wife sees the mess , another free day or two and a little planning/pickup a couple bits i need yet , i think i can get these two pretty well done , the third probably needs to wait till good weather , i need to dig in the garage for some materials i have buried away out there ,
