Default Enfield No.4 Mk1

picked up this Lee-Enfield No.4 Mk1 today at a new gunshop up in milwaukee. it was a consignment sale amongst 4 or 5 non-german mausers. cost was 225$ couldnt resist since it appears to me to be un-fkd with sample that did not appear to be re-arsenaled due to the patina. but im not even close to an enfield expert. it just looked right cept for the relief cuts in the upper rear handguard.



one thing that i noticed is it isnt as smooth to cycle as the 1903 springfields or mosin 91/30s. but i really like that detachable 10 round clip heh.



its got several numbers and markings that i havent a clue about including a number under the wood handguard on the barrel that matches the one on the rear of the reciever behind the trigger



the first letter there is a "E"



the trigger is quite good very crisp pretty light with no detectable creep. its currently about as filthy as any war rifle i have ever come across. prolly been sitting in a closet for a couple of decades.

hopefully the bore is good as its too dirty to really tell.

Good deal any more, Jon. The handguard is correct. Some were grooved, some were not.

I have a No4 with an S&K mount on it and it works great, with no mods.
