The trigger on this enfield is by far the best on all my war rifles. It doesnt need any adjusting or replacement i just hope it doesnt get worse when i clean it lol

Still looking for a no-drill mount? This guy doesn't export and they'd probably be much cheaper over there anyway but if they're not, I can get one sent to me then forward it to you..

No Gun smithing needed

The bolt is plenty smooth you just need time to get used to it...the british guns set the firing pin on the closing stroke of the bolt so it seems harder to close...but after the first shot the bolt will pop open because of the spring tension

Jon, I quoted the unsub because he's got a rough trigger. My suggestion was actually for him. Sorry if I was unclear.

havent had it to the range yet but im looking forward to it. it is way different than what im used to thats for sure. ive spent most of bolt gun shooting either the mauser style or rem700 style.

The No4mk1 is a great rifle. I have a 1942 No4mk1/3 FTR'ed in 1952. I love the micrometer sight. Original 2 groove Longbranch, except for the upgraded trigger and rear sight.

what you have there are two Number 1 Mark 3's the "ww1 version" of the one in this thread

I think they are beautiful rifles and fun to shoot.


and while I'm in here I'm gonna ask....Why do enfields from everywhere else seem so much cheaper than the ones in western NY??? I haven't seen a single enfield under $400 unless it's in completely terrible shape.
