Here is a video of the junk you can get for a crazy amount of cash from RTI.
I remember back in the day the joke was a Century "GOOD" coded Enfield was not so good. Let me tell you, those $79 Century "GOOD" coded rifles were in fantastic condition in comparison to the RTI Ethiopian Enfields.
I stumbled onto this video. Take down, and the true horror is seen.
So here is a good example of an RTI Enfield No. 4 rifle that is better than normally received. But this video really shows the junk under the wood. The guy used carb cleaner to degrease, hot running water to do an initial wash down of the degreasing product, then a boil of the metal parts and a rub down with steel wool when brass wool might have worked better. No comment on his horrible wood treatment. At least the stock parts were not cleaned in a dishwasher. I am really shocked at the garbage and bugs under the wood, yet no worm holes or visible trails in the wood. The bugs must have liked the taste of the Somali wild donkey grease used on the rifles.
Kind of crazy : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GdmVCGhCoOA&t=2s
Note the Enfield was not as bad as this VZ 52 shown above that he also purchased.
