Seller's Description

Guns For Sale - 1943 British Enfield No 4 Mk 1 -- WWII .303 Caliber Bolt Action Rifle C&R OK

LSB#: 110711RS1

Make: United Kingdom

Model: No. 4, Mk I.

Serial Number: AG0248

Year of Manufacture: 1943

Caliber: .303 British

Action Type: Bolt-Action Rifle

Markings: The left front of the receiver is stamped “.303 BRIT / U.K.”, and to the rear it is also stamped, “No. 4, Mk 1/3 (F) FTR//53- AGO248”. The left side of the stock mounting is stamped “M 4 7 / 1943 / AGO248,” and beneath that, “IAC, ALEX, VA.” The left of the front barrel band is stamped “F/50.” The bottom of the magazine is also stamped “AGO248.” What appears to be “121” is stamped on the right side of the stock, just below and in front of the receiver. The stock, bolt handle and magazine are also marked “AG 0248”.

Barrel Length: 25 1/2"

Sights / Optics: The gun is mounted with an extremely durable winged front sight, and the “good” rear sight that is a peep flip sight with a click-adjustable ladder.

Stock Configuration & Condition: The stock(s) is/are a re-varnished hardwood, showing the nicks and dings consistent with a rifle of this vintage and intended usage. None of these remotely affect the performance of this rifle. The trap-door brass butt plate is fitted, and the nose cap is tight fitting. The upper hand guards are in nice condition and well matched. Intriguingly, where the sniper Enfields had a cheek piece installed, there are two screw holes in the comb.

Type of Finish: Parkerized Steel

Finish Originality: This rifle appears to be arsenal refinished.

Bore Condition: The rifling is good and clear. There is only modest evidence of erosion.

Overall Condition: This gun retains about 90% of its metal finish. The balance of the finish shows modest wear. There is finish loss from handling, primarily to the edges and a few light scattered nicks to the finish. The Screw heads are showing some use, but extremely serviceable. The markings are clear and sharp. Overall, this gun rates in about good to very good condition.

Mechanics: The action functions smoothly and correctly, although we have not test-fired this rifle..

Box & Accessories: There is a nice, brass mounted Uncle Mike’s leather sling attached.

Our Assessment: The British Enfield rifles are among the most successful and noteworthy battle rifles ever made. Spanning two World Wars and countless lesser conflicts, the Lee-Enfield is a durable and robust design, which is still in use in several countries today. The relatively high capacity 10-shot magazine gave it a distinct edge over its contemporaries, and the cock-on-closing actuation made it possible for the rifle to be cycled with great rapidity. When used in what the British called “Volley Mode”, the Enfield can fire nearly a round per second, leading German troops who faced it for the first time to report that they were facing automatic weapons. The .303 caliber is respected for its modest recoil in a hard-hitting, accurate package. This one is arsenal reconditioned, and in very good condition. The winner of this auction will be getting an especially fine example of this worthy old war horse.

CA Legal or CA Private Party Transferable: Yes, C&R eligible.
