Can anyone explain the brass unit disc on the stock of the older Enfields? I know it has something to do with what regiment it was issued to. Also I think I read somewhere that the No4 Mk1s had one in the stock where the stick screw was. I'll check when I get home. Can anyone shed some light in this? Thanks

Mine is a No.4 Mk.1, but no disc, aside from that I'm not much use, sorry.

That's fine, he just emailed me back saying he wasn't interested anymore, said he wanted something small and centerfire for his son.

I believe it was a unit marker, but I'm not sure.

Pull it apart and check for free movement of the firing pin. A stuck (cosmoline) firing pin can slam fire and empty the magazine quickly. There are several good videos of the procedure on Youtube.

Ive heard of the slam fire a lot. I'm just thrilled I'm finally getting one. Had several pulled from under me.

Ok here's a 7.62x39 question. I was at my LGS and they have 300 rounds for $80. I can't remember the brand but it's all in a plastic ammo can. A good deal?

Yes that is a good price... $0.27ish a round.
