By the way, for you Enfield experts, yes it is a real Jungle Carbine with the
lightening flutes in the barrel and other indicators such as the 800 yard flip
up sight, not the No 4 1200 yard sight. I would not bother with the
refinishing if it was a fake.

I am trying to refinish a wood stock for an Enfield No 5 Jungle Carbine.
anyone have a source of complete dis-assembly instructions? I have had this
gun since 1986 when I bought it for $99 in a well known Southern California
Military surplus gun dealer. It was loaded with cosmoline when I got it
I have long since cleaned away. The stock "bleeds" oil when left in the sun.
Probably from overzealous lubricating by novice military handlers in years
past. I was told years ago "Oven Off" paste will draw out the oil from the
stock after repeated applications so I can sand and fill it before staining.
Type of stain recommendations? Anyone with experience in this area? I went
out into the garage to pull it from the safe today, which is right in front
where the Bugeye is parked. (obligitory LBC content).
