I think the reason the one the OP has been using won`t stay is that the the stripper clip slot is wore out !...................

The thing I like about the no4 mk1 is the iron sights. I use mine as a brush gun, it has the micro adjustable flip up peep sight. I found difficulty in mounting optics on my surplus gun (mosin 91/30), eventually got an excellent mount from brassstacker.com but didn't have the funds to get a better optics. I had foolishly bought ncstar pistol scope. You have to spend a bit Moore and get quality glass and mount.

I am an SMLE owner and am interested in your marks. Here is an image browser by "Bing" that might get you a picture of what and where you gun has been. One of mine was made in England, refurbed in Australia(Lithgow) and has a ton of proofs etc., I have a couple of long distanc pics but nothing that shows the markings

Newish...
I shot the hell out of a 303 in my youth. The sights are solid and the action faster than any deer hunter will need. I would argue that the Enfield 303 has killed as more men than any other bolt gun

Because of the history of area covered by the British over the time of service I would have to agree, I would like to see a list of countries it served in in conflicts (Wars), including the Boer or 2nd Boer war

It is the map of the British Empire from 1888. In training. In war it has been used everywhere the British or British arms were used until the dominance of the FAL in the '60's. And then the movement of British arms in support of LIC'S all across southern and south Asia as well as Africa.

I just attended the annual spring gun show at the Eagle River Lions Club. One of the many I drooled over was a 1942 Savage Arms #4MK1 (Made in U.S.A) for $895.00. one of the others was a Smith Corona made 03A3
