I am looking for a #4 Enfield action for a project rifle. I want to make a Gibbs Summit style 45-70 bolt rifle. Ideally it would come with the bolt and trigger guard/mag well,but especially the bolt.

Maybe a long shot, I know, but I can't get the idea for this rifle out of my head.

Onenut, thanks for the links. I saw the auction for the Gibbs but between price and wanting to do it myself as a project, I would rather find an action to build it around. There is one on gunbroker as well. I also don't want to ruin an original rifle in order to do this build.

You might try posting over at Parallax Bill's Curio and Relics forums.
I've had good luck on several items there.

Sarco in the Shotgun News has them from time to time as well. Good luck, sounds like a neat project.

Would a Enfield 2a action work?
I have one that has been reborn as a .308 Jungle Carbine.
