    British #4 MK 1

    I picked up a #4 MK 1 rifle yesterday. A friend was looking for a decent shooter after shooting my Savage #4 so when I
    I stumbled upon this one I snatched it up. It had the usual post war preservative in just about every nook and cranny.
    It should be a good shooter..has one of the nicest barrels I've seen on one of these. It has an import mark as
    most do and needed a good cleaning. I gave $125 as is..cleaned up quite well. One question..the notch to remove the bolt
    is at the rear of the receiver...the notch on my Savage is to the front of the receiver..not a big deal..just curious. here's a
    few pics. Dick

    Looks like $125 well spent.

    Nice! My sporterized .303 is a great shooter.

    Nice rifle at a very good price. Around here it would be several hundred more. I like the brass butt plate.

    Agreed $125 for most any complete, correct milsurp is a bargain. Well done.

    You did well at that price.
    I have 2 Enfield's. One is sporterized for deer hunting, and the other is in full original military configuration.
    4 years ago I paid $200 for the military version, and $100 for the sporterized version. Both are still in 303 Brit, just they way they should be.
    Congratulations on the addition to your military collection.

    Don't get me wrong, I love a good Mauser,,,,,,,, but, sometimes it is refreshing to handle a rifle that has NOTHING copied or in common with a Mauser.
    That would be an Enfield. Strictly a beast onto themselves.
    Enfields rock.
    Where am I going ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, and why am I in this handbasket ?

    You know my uncle , he's as honest as me . An I'm as honest as a government man can be.
