Default 1922 Enfield No1 MkV SHTLE

So i picked this up in a trade this weekend along with a K31. I am wondering just how much this may be worth. The gun has been arsenally refinished and is in the high 90% condition. The stock has no dents or dings, and there is just on small scratch on the side of the rear ladder sight. My research has lead me to understand that this was a trials rifle and there were 22k total made, and 6500 of those were 1922. The last one that I found that sold went for something like 1700 on gun broker a year and a half ago and was not in this nice of condition. Any experts out here tell me a little more about the possible value of this rifle, or any identifying marks I may need to look for? I will try to upload pictures soon, on a work computer right now.

John

The wood is a little darker than what the pictures show.

There are several items unique to the Mk V rifle: The rear sight, the rear handguard, the safety lever, the magazine cutoff, the upper band just aft of the nose cap. The safety, cutoff and rear handguard are frequently missing and have been replaced with modern reproductions. I worked in a gunshop in the 70s that had a number of Mk V rifles on hand that had come in from the UK in the early 60s with a massive quantity of arms imported by the gunshop owner, all of them missing the rear handguard and with buggered rear sights. If your rifle is indeed all matching and all original and in great shape you have a $1,500 rifle. Those with reproduction parts have less value.

I'd love to see some more pictures of your rifle!

Here are all the markings I can find minus the Serial. It is a 4 digit in the 1000s. Thank you all for helping me figure some of these out. Next I will post up my new k31 so can all brush up on our foreign language skills, lol.

Those are factory proof and inspection marks (EFD = Enfield) plus BNP = Birmingham Nitro Proof applied to all firearms sold commercially in the UK. This means that the arm passed through a commercial wholesaler on the way to the U.S. I'd be interested in seeing the safety lever and magazine cut off plate too if you have the time. If you remove the rear handguard carefully you should find the same s.n. on the barrel as on the receiver, bolt, and nosecap.

Here are some of the requested pictures and a few more marking that are on the trigger guard and stock.

And here is one more shot that didn't fit on last message.

The Serial on the stock, bolt and receiver all match. I don't trust myself to start removing parts on this to look for more markings if it has the ability to be worth something. I tend to use the "bigger hammer" method of fixing things, and this is no chinese sks that i don't mind disassembling and reassembling for poops and grins.

Take it over to Gunboards in the Lee Enfield section. There are some gurus there you will tell you what is what on it. It may have been restored to its current condition but it sure looks nice!

I recently sold one for 1400 and bought an all matching excellent one for 1500 with all original parts. They were made in 22 and 24.
