Enfield No.4 Mk1* Long Branch 7.62mm

The No. 4 Mk I was officially adopted in 1941.The No. 4 action was similar to the No.1 Mk VI but stronger and easier to mass-produce. Unlike the SMLE, that had a nose cap, the No 4 Lee–Enfield barrel protruded from the end of the forestock. For easier machining, the charger bridge was no longer rounded. The iron sight line was redesigned and featured a rear receiver aperture battle sight calibrated for 300 yd (274 m) with an additional ladder aperture sight that could be flipped up and was calibrated for 200–1,300 yd (183–1,189 m) in 100 yd (91 m) increments. This sight, like other aperture sights, proved to be faster and more accurate than the typical mid-barrel open rear sight elements sight lines offered by Mauser.

During the course of the Second World War, the No. 4 rifle was further simplified for mass-production with the creation of the No. 4 Mk I* in 1942, with the bolt release catch replaced by a simpler notch on the bolt track of the rifle’s receiver. It was produced only by Small Arms Limited at Long Branch in Canada.

The No.4 rifle was primarily produced for the United Kingdom, Canada and some other Commonwealth countries including New Zealand.

This is a nice rifle with a good bore and in fine condition. There is a good financial benefit in shooting 7.62mm over the .303 British.
