Ok, I picked up the rifle from my FFL today. Here are a couple pics of the rifle
Things I plan on doing or having done:
Removing the Crapco scope mount. The seller didn't include the original top cover, so I'm going to have o source one. I found a couple of L1A1 top covers on Gunbroker for 30 bucks, but they're Enfield and BSA. Would it be worth tracking down a Lithgow top cover for correctness's sake, or will an English one do?
Buy some proper Inch mags. The rifle came with four metric mags, three steel and one Thermelt. They do, of course fit and lock in the rifle, albeit with a bit of play or wobble.
Reinstall the carry handle. Thankfully, the previous owner included that.
Get some Ironwood furniture. Only the pistol grip appears to be the original coachwood that the rifle should have. The hand guards appear to be incorrect too.
Replace the muzzle brake with the correct flash hider.
Possibly replace the front sight post, as I suspect it may have been cut.
