I don't have an obsession with Enfields as much as I have an obsession for all things gun but I also have 6 Enfields and you can make that 7 if you count the pattern 14. I have a No. 4 MK II that was one of what is called the Irish Contract rifles that is in unfired unissued condition. You gotta love these old soldiers.

I have an Ishapore? Guess it is the bastard child in .308, haven't fired it guess I should.

Please note the Ishy is not a .308- it is a 7.62 NATO, and yes, there IS a difference.

And I am now down to my last 1000 rds of my Greek Milsurp .303. Going to need some additional fodder for the rifles.

5 Lee-Enfield's for me 1912 Enfield Arsenal No. 1 Mk III, 1943 BSA No. 4 Mk, 1944 BSA No. 4 Mk I, 1944 Longbranch No. 4 Mk I* and a 1947 RoF No. 5 Mk I jungle carbine. You can also toss in my Enfield No. 2 Revolver :-)

1... SMLE Mk III
2....Savage No 4 Mk I
3....Long Branch No 4 Mk I*
4....Fazakerly No 4 Mk II
5....Ishapore 2A Mk I
6....No 5 Mk I

I really don't know if the No 4 Mk II was part of the Irish contract or not. Its serial number doesn't match some of the ranges I have seen but when I I got it, it was still in the wrap. I still have the label from the wrap that says:

Rifle No. 4. Mk 2.
C. R. 18 GA
(Normal Butt)

I read somewhere that the Irish Contract rifles serial # range was between PF309348 - PF359347. Mine is UF 55 A 6733.
