Default Lee-Enfield No.4 Mk I*

Appears to be all matching to me except the Sight says Mk 3 on it. Says Long Branch 1943 on it, got it from a fellow Calgunner.

That rifle sure has a beautiful stock! Does your rifle have a ladder sight?

They were first produced in 1895, so I wouldn't be surprised that many were made. haha.

Keep in mind that there were like 4 or 6 different rear sights for No.4 rifles too.


Nice acquisition. I strongly approve.


What is the bore like?

Its all good Dr. Pepper, It happens.

The bore is great, it shoots great very accurate, but I would still like to have the original sights for it, but I can't seem to be able to locate them online.

I find that I like those micrometers better...

What sight are you specifically talking about?

Aren't micrometer sights correct for Long Branch No.4's?

How does the bolt dissmount slot look on the other side? I have an LB some place I should dig it out. I need some new pictures with better light.




Little rougher than your #4, it's 1942 and has been used #4MkI*3(FTR)

No many have a alloy replacement pot metal like butt plate. I still prefer the brass as it makes a fine war club. The name used for the mixed metal escapes me at the moment.

If you are referring to the British zinc pot metal alloy it was called Mazak. It was also used to make trim parts and light housings for British cars.

I am certainly glad mine has a brass plate. I think it looks quite handsome on the gun.

Mine as posted above is a Brass Butt plate.

But those sights aren't original to the rifle are they?

What sights and who are you asking? My LB came with the long range ladder sight of stampped metal and BSA or Faz. had the milled ladder type.

The Canadian Mk.3 rear sight was used on Long Branch No.4's in 1943 and 1944, so it is the correct rear sight.

Since we're on the subject for asking about the original rear sights---my Savage made Mk.1* would have the basic flip up with the 300/600 appretures, right?


Because it doesn't, It actually has the original kind of micrometer (which I prefer anyway).
