Took her out to the range on Sat. What a sweet rifle. Shot like a dream. Front of the gun liked to jump a bit off the sand bag. My biggest problem was seeing any detail on the target at 100 yards. Hit the 8.5 x11" target everytime just couldn't see the bulls eye at that distance. 50 yards nice 2" groups slightly low to the right. A little sight adjustments to the left and almost right on. I have a feeling Santa's bringing me a scope or a suggested new peep sight for Christmas.

Cool beans.

They also came with micrometer sites.

To group17: Maybe you need a bigger target to see at 100 yards. I'm not sure of your target type but open sights require a larger target than you would normally use for a scoped rifle. Do you use any sort of sight black to dull reflective metal on the sights? That will go a way towards improving clarity. What type of hold do you use? 6 o'clock?

Default Another variation I've got on my No.4

A variation of a rear sight I'd not seen before on Enfields. May be hard to distinguish from this picture (sorry) but it is different from the posted picture above.

Default looks some what like....

It looks somewhat like the Golden State Santa Fe sporter

Golden State Arms - Santa Fe Sporter.

I got one for my 13th birthday almost 40 yrs. ago. and have done a little updating since. It was $37 back then. I don't believe in butchering milsurps myself but it was already started when I got it. I do have a #4 mk1 Savage made in full military. But the Santa Fe is now my pet rifle. It shoots 1-1/2 moa with a cheap Tasco and factory ammo.

I know this is an old post but I was in C&R trying to get info on an old shotgun and saw this post, thought you might be interested.

Finally got around to trying a scope on her. It is a vast improvement to the peep sight that came with her IMO. Zeroed in just fine and everything can be put back to original in short order.
