i pulled out my 1919 ishapore no1 mk3. the butt socket is marked SHTLE, which means short lee-enfield. heavier barrels were a feature of the no4 and as far as i can determine from numerous references, no ishapore was scoped.
do you have patridge rather than peep sights? india's ishapore and austrailia's lithgow kept the no1 mk3 configuration thru ww2 and ishapore kept the basic configuration even when they converted it to the nato compatible no2 a1 in 7.62x51.
still a neat gun.
