Good day, I am looking at a friends Rifle and am haveing difficulty finding information about it, from images I've seen online it looks like a Lee Enfield MKII or MKIV but there are a few markings on it I can't seem to ID, instead of a crown ot other symbol it had a bear and a few other symbols are on it I'm not certain about as well, below are posted some of the pics I took

Any assistance would be appreciated

Thank you

Show us a pic of the whole rifle, might be easier to start with a general idea of what rifle it is.

I've seen that mark before, I think it's a tiger, not a bear. My guess would be Nepal, think I saw it on a Martini-Henry from Nepal. Just can't quite remember. It's obviously from a country that doesn't use our style alphabet.

Is it on a SMLE, or perhaps an older LE?

:) It sure looks like far eastern script of some type! IE Indian or Pakastani! :D
