Guns For Sale - British Enfield No. 4 MK 1 -- Savage .303 Rifle Marked U.S. Property Marked 1945

LSB#: 110421LC1

Make: Enfield
Model: No. 4 MK 1

Serial Number: 0C55792

Year of Manufacture: Wartime production (1945?).

Caliber: .303 British

Action Type: Bolt Action Rifle

Markings: The left side of the receiver is marked "US PROPERTY" and under that: "NO 4 MK1 / 3 (f) FTR"; this is over-stamped on top of "5 No 4 MkI*". Below this is "/51. 0C55792". There is a flaming bomb on the left side of the receiver. On the left side of the barrel at the receiver is a crown over "BNP". There is another stamp which is very hard to read but looks like "JJ" on the top of the barrel at the receiver. On the left side of the band at the wrist is marked with "0C55792", "B", and "52". There is another obscured mark in the same area which appears to have four characters including a "4" and a "P" the rest cannot be read. The top of the bolt flat has a "7" an "NP" and an "M". On the wrist band right side is "79P" with an arrow, and "91P", with an arrow. The bottom of the magazine is marked with the number "0C55792". The bottom of the stock behind the trigger guard is marked "U", "N@", and "C". and "F", "R" on the right side of the buttstock. There is an "L" or an "7" on the top of the buttstock at the heel. There is an "F" on the left side of the rear sight, and another "F" at the top of the sight, on the back side is the number "53". The backside of the bolt handle is marked with the serial number.

Barrel Length: 25"

Sights / Optics: The gun is mounted with a front battle blade and a rear flip up vernier peep sight.

Stock Configuration & Condition: The stock(s) is/are wooden in serviceable condition with nicks, dings, and gouges but no major cracks or losses. The top and bottom forend wood have the most surface disruption. There is a brass buttplate with cleaning kit trap door. The serial number “0C55792” is found stamped on the underside of the forend wood.

Type of Finish: Blued

Finish Originality: The finish looks original but some of the serial number markings lead us to believe that this could be a rebuild (arsenal?). Some of the finish looks painted near the end cap on the forend.

Bore Condition: The rifling is sharp and deep but the bore is gray and has surface erosion in the flats the full length of the barrel.
Overall Condition: This gun retains about 75% of its metal finish as described . The balance of the finish shows surface mottling and mars to the finish especially around the muzzle and the wrist band, and the underside of the trigger guard.. The Screw heads show some use but have little disfiguration. The markings are clear. Overall, this gun rates in about very good condition.

Mechanics: The action functions correctly, but we have not test fired this gun.

Box & Accessories: There is a modern era canvas sling attached to this gun.

Our Assessment: This is a very good battle rifle to add to your collection. The Lee-Enfield bolt-action, magazine-fed, repeating rifle was the main firearm used by the military forces of the British Empire and Commonwealth during the first half of the 20th century. It was the British Army's standard rifle from its official adoption in 1895 until 1957. This gun is unusally marked with both US Property and "flaming bomb". The markings and large "S" indicate that this was produced by Savage Arms Corp. for the "Lend Lease" program. The barrel is in good condition and will likely clean up well. The gun is in good servicable condition overall. Attention collectors, re-enacters and plinkers. This is a rare opporunity to obtain an Enfield manufactured during WWII by a U.S. Company.

CA Legal or CA Private Party Transferable: This gun is California legal and C&R eligible.

Questions for Users
(Public)   
    Q:  Hello, Please advise regarding the following. 1. SERIAL NUMBERS. a. Does the number on the rear face of the bolt handle match the number of the receiver? b. Is the number on the rear face of the bolt handle stamped or electric penciled (engraved)? c. Was the rear face of the bolt handle reground to force-match (renumber) the bolt to match the receiver? Thanks in advance. 05/21/2011
        A:  Thank you for your question. The serial number on the back of the bolt looks like it engraved not stamped there are some deep marks in the numbers but when viewed under a magnifying glass there looks like pin points or electric pencil. There is also some sort of "bird" proof mark on the bolt at the round handle.I cannot tell if the bolt handle has been reground. there are some heavy machine marks.hope this helps. Lew. 05/23/2011
