    I was browsing the online classifieds and came across this poor Lee-Enfield No4 Mark 1*. I've seen some pretty sorry looking 'sporters' but this takes the cake.

    Yes, that appears to be an M4 Carbine adjustable stock on it. And I'm not even going to comment on the Picatinny rail mounted on the side of the stock.

    To quote Colonel Kurtz from Apocalypse Now "The Horror".

    Note: If the seller somehow finds this ad, no offense intended, but that is just one sad LE.

    I think that is somebodies idea of a "Scout Rifle." Colonel Jeff Cooper would roll over in his grave...

    Oh Noes! It's the return of the return of the Fraken-Rifle!

    Just think, it could be worse, much worse. Just look at this Franken-SKS

    According to many sellers up here, slapping a 'Crapco' stock, $5 red dot and a laser means that the value of the SKS increases by at least 100%.

    A 'stock' SKS goes for about $200. One 'upgraded' for 'no recoil, super accurate, 0.001 MOA shooting' like that will usually be listed for between $400 and $500. More surprisingly, people actually pay for this.
