    Default Enfield No4 Mk1 Almost Finished

    Well, well...It has been a long time since I've posted, I mean a long time.

    I have been locked up in my workshop doing what I love to do and that's playing with guns.
    There is an old saying, "The more advanced the mind, the more need for play."

    As most of you know, I do love the AK's but...

    I started on a new project (Thanks Alan), re-working a Enfield No4 Mk1. Did the bedding thing, I think that there was 5 bedding operations to complete.
    Had to modify the scope mount so it would accept the PE scope and repalced a few worn parts. So, here it is. Best 5 shot group so far is
    1.318 MOA. Not to shabby for a rifle made in 1943.

    Wow,

    That is a purdy Rifle! I love Enfields too. Been working on resuscitating some previously bubba'd sporters. Still workin' on them. I am at the point where I need to buy front sight blades. Mine are all Iron Sight only. I'll start a thread in the next week or two. It has been a fun project so far....

    nice

    since you don't say I assume the mount is one of those sarco mounts with no scope, hows the pe scope working with that mount No.32 scopes whether original or repro are expensive, nice cheek piece
    Sprat and sprat1 are one and the same.

    That looks GREAT ,Token Kopf.

    Surprisingly enough with all the guns I've got,, I don't have a single Enfield ,, man what a slacker. I've had several in the past but when the surplus ammo all dried up I sorta drifted away from them. I've taken quite a few deer with a .303 , there a damn good shooter. I don't know what happened to one my Pa had many years ago that had been sporterized and had a custom barrel installed, that one shot like crazy!! That's the one I took several deer with when I was a kid.

    Nice job on yours and nice to see ya back around again, don't be a stranger!

    I think it's a Numrich Arms scope mount and pads. The PE scope works great, 1/4" clicks and the reticle stays centered.

    yes numrich I remember seeing the ads, at one time they had the original scopes to I thought and I could be wrong but did these units NOT come with the lock down screws?

    that PE scope should work as the differences in 303 and 7.62x54r are not much at all
    Sprat and sprat1 are one and the same.
