Guys,

What is the reason for the Ishapore screw seen in some Enfield No4 stocks and how much does it detract from the value of the rifle?

Thanks,

Rob

I read somewhere on the web, that the screw was put there for reinforcement.

It shouldn't detract from the rifle if it saw service in India, and it's the original stock.

Now if it's a replacement stock on a Long Branch, that stayed out of the far east it would probably detract from the value. How much is anyone guess though.
