Heres a nice example of a M98 1920 build by William Evans. .318 Westley Richards. Had it for a while and gets a little use on game. Pretty handy calibre with great penetration from the woodleigh 250RNSP and solids.
Came with leupold 7/8 inch tube 4 power leupold. Mounted high. Hard to get a good Cheek weld but still shootable. Tip off mounts for access to the iron sights which are shooting high so needs do something with the front sight. Nice flip up moonlight bead, at the front sight.
Easy to load for with trimmed 30-06 cases necked to .330, 2209 and a 250 RNSP.
Handles like a English sporting rifle should....................
Heres few pics cheers Mick

Mick you must be very happy to have such a fine rifle, if only it could talk the see Tories it could tell.
