parker hale enfield sporter
Just picked up this nice little sporter.
From what I have found out it is a
R.O.F.M. NO4 MK1 1941 Parker Hale sporter 303 w/ Matching SN # 015569 on the receiver, barrel and bolt.

It looks well done. Have you fired it yet?

group17 11-02-2009 06:28 PM

No, I haven't but the bore is very clean and I just picked up 2 boxes of 303.
Hopefully in the next two weeks.

Excellent. Post a range report & pics when you take it out.

I have fired 2 that look just like that. One was still in .303, and one was in 45-70. What a little thumper she is.

Not a bad looking rifle.. I normally don't like milsurps that have been sporterized especially the Nagants and the Enfields cause they normally look goofy to me that way but yours was done pretty well.

I'm also waiting for a range report :) tell us how you like it..

Thanks RCHanlin,
I haven't had a chance to take it to the range yet. Hoping to Black Friday, weather permitting. I want to take along a Beretta 84 BB I just acquired. Actually found a couple boxes of 380 to test it with this past week.
Will give a range report ASAP.

RCHanlin 11-23-2009 07:30 PM

I'll be looking for it..

You should replace the 300/600 yard battle sight with the Proper Peep sight. It uses the same pin, plunger and Spring.

SMLE Original Milled Rear Sight*|*

I am legally blind, and I can shoot shotgun clays and bowling Pins at 100 yards with the No5 Jungle Carbine that I so dearly enjoy. It has the Milled Sight.
