Well, it is not original to the weapon so you would probably want to replace it with the correct part. It is hard to tell at a glance, but this particular Enfield may well be cobbled together from disassociated parts. For example the rear barrel band appears to be from a 4th type P53 (post 1862 RSAF produced), ramrod appears too long and so on.
