Any Enfield aficionados here? Let's see who can ID this from the photo. What is it?
Welllll... looks like one of those No 4. Mk II's that's still in the wrap...
No4 MK2...................sheesh, that wasn't hard..............
What is it?:laugh:
Check this site out. It may give you more info on your gun. If that rifle is wrapped up in paper or canvas, coated in grease, they are highly desirable to collectors in that condition. So unless you plan on shooting it or dislaying it, I wouldn't unwrap it any further.
It more than just a No4MkII Enfield made in Jan of 1955 at Fazakerly. The clue is in the serial number.
1 of 55?
Irish Contract rifle.
OK, It's a Irish contract Enfield. The serial number block of PF309348 to PF359347. Rifles in that block cause Enfield collectors to dance an Irish jig.
After removing the cosmoline it well look like this. #'s matching bayonet. New, unfired, 55 year old No4MkII.
If it's unfired, what good is it?
It's worth a lot of money the way it is, but you know how much fun it would be to unwrap that muther and start blasting?
Whatever you do with it, it IS very cool:thumbup:
I get to pop another cherry and let me tell you they are few and far between at my age.
I've never seen one so nice. Excellent !
Very cool. Last year the Brits made No.4's.
that's a beauty.
I used the no. 4 for about 4 years as an army cadet while before and during the introduction of the L98A1 cadet GP rifle.
This was when I was a junior NCO during a school open day demonstation. Probably 1990. I'm the one kneeling and pointing.
