You can try ebay. I've found stripper clips and bandoleers there and in the past I've seen aftermarket sights as well.
Shotgun News has ads from vendors that sell some Enfield parts.

The best sight to get, for target shooting, is the milled click-knob adjustable model, not the sheet metal spring-latch version.
The stamped sheet metal spring latch version locks ONLY onto even 100yd (m?) increments, which is way too coarse for target work.

The milled version which uses a screw to raise and lower the sight 1 click at a time, moving the point of impact a minute of angle at a time. This is the same level of precision that an M1 gives you, and is acceptable for a service rifle.

Also, with the milled sight, you have to deploy the sight (flip it up) to remove the bolt.

Here's one type of milled sight:
"Rear Sight, Micrometer, Milled,
key no. 3A, part no. 531460",
http://www.e-gunparts.com/productschem.asp?chrMasterModel=1990zNO.%204%20MKI

The best milled sight will be graduated from 200 to 1300 yds; the sight advertised above only goes to 800yds.

edit- they also have stripper clips, item 492960, $1.40 ea.
After charging with the second clip, just close the bolt fast- the clip recess in the receiver is designed to expel the clip automatically.

Sarco has micrometer sights also,
