    Note: After you click on images to ENLARGE them, you may find they automatically size smaller in your browser's window making them harder to view. The auto sizing is your browser's way of keeping images entirely within the screen size you have set. Move your mouse pointer to the bottom centre of the pic and you will see an options panel appear. There will be a small square box next to the large X, which will have a pointer arrow sticking out of it. If it's illuminated, it means the pic you're viewing can be enlarged, so click on this box and the pic will EXPAND and open to its normal size. Low quality pics shown below are for illustrative purposes only and the quality of the images within the drawings of the PDF file download are much greater.

    Blueprints for Chest S.A. No.15 Mk1

    This complete set of technical blueprint drawings are for Chest S.A. No.15 Mk for Rifles No.4 with telescope and case. The originals appeared to have been created about December 9th, 1941 and they include revisions through to May 7th, 1945

    Collector's Comments and Feedback:

    1. With thanks to member mudpuppy, you'll find an updated and excellent companion article to this one titled Mechanical Blueprints and Specifications for the Enfield No.4 Mk1(T) Sniper Rifle (click here), also located in the Technical Articles for Milsurp Collectors and Re-loaders (click here).

    Due to the poor quality of the originals, some of the drawings were challenging to read the very small print dimensions after digitizing, so Mudpuupy requested better quality versions from the "Pattern Room". Unfortunately, they weren't a lot better and as he wrote me, "I had to sit down with a caliper, my copies of the drawings, an original set of pads and rifle to confirm what was on the drawings. I edited the drawings and re-typed all the relevant information so it is clear now."

    The addition to his original article, which included drawings and specifications for the scope mount, pads, pad screws, thumb screws and cheekpiece, now provides these additional higher quality digitized images of the No.4(T) scope pads and their receiver mountings. Refer to Note #1 under the Collectors Comments and Feedback section of the article to obtain these new updated blueprint drawings. If you want to get the best images, download the PDF file versions and then use the Adobe PDF reader to "zoom in" and blow them up so you can read the fine dimensions and specs.
