I thought BSA was Birmingham Small Arms.

And the crown on mine is different than this 1 if that means anything.
Does it look like this ?.........90635F25FiCYRrmkhZzvBJz5oUrijLofli7lysE.jpg It`s an asterisk !.........It depends on where it was built to what the asterisk looks like.

mine is a No. 1, Mk. 1, I bought an aftermarket mag for a No. 1 Mk. III from sportsmans guide. it says it's a 10 rounder like the originals but mine only seems to hold 8. oh well, 8 is still plenty of .303

That's the stamp on the wrist of mine, except dated 1918. So it's a Mk3* then. Since my rear sight is the long range type mounted on the barrel, is it safe to say it's a No1? So all together I've got a No1Mk3*. If everything I'm reading is correct. Holy cow there's a lot of variants of this gun. So the pro mag No1Mk3 mags should work in my gun correct?

Anybody got any opinions on the pro mag mags? I haven't had very good luck with them in the past, but from what I gather it sounds like there just needs to be some tweaking of the feed lips. Other than that, are they worth the money for some beater woods or range use mags?

Thanks guys.

Also, the scout from earlier in the thread has me intrigued. Is it possible to move my rear sight from the barrel to the rear of the receiver to make room for a scout mount?

Let me rephrase that question, is it possible to put a completely different rear sight on my receiver and remove the sight on my barrel. It's pretty obvious just by the size of my current rear sight that I couldn't move it to the receiver. The shortness of this answer makes me wonder if that was how my question was taken. So are there any other receiver mounted rear sight options available for this model of enfield? Thanks.

if you want an enfield with the rear sight on the back of the receiver, look for a p 17. us made in .30-06. other than that, it ain't gonna happen.
