    It's certainly not excessive for these beasts, looks a good buy. I've just sold two; one for a little under 4k & one for a little over.

    Yes, let us have a few photo's with reference to the body side wall, butt socket, & a view showing the body pads with the scope OFF as well as on. You'll then be up to your neck in useful information!

    Many years ago I bought a cheap 7.62mm target rifle because it was built on a 1945 BSA No4 T body. The rifle sported a PH 5C target sight & to overcome exactly this problem the rear pad had been...

    Indeed. An Aldis scope that had long since been stripped of its original H&H mounts now wears them again, thanks to Phil - not just A set of rings, but THE set of rings.

    It's my fault Brian. This is 22SqnRAE's thread. I just mentioned the Savage 4T conversions 'en passant' to illustrate a point, but it's become like the proverbial snowball rolling down hill!

    If Lend Lease came in in February 1941 you might reasonably expect all Savage rifles should bear the US Property stamp, as No4 production didn't get under way until later in 1941. Granted there is...

    Hi TRAMO. The Q prefix serial number would mean the rifle it was from could have been dated 1944 or 1945, as they were at the change of the year around the P/Q/R prefixes. I have owned both P & R...

    One thing nobody has commented on yet, & which is puzzling me, is the fact that whilst the rifle serial has been re-engraved (granted, I'm making an assumption, & I know it is an assumption, that the...

    They generally came with 'Singer' rear sights manufactured actually by Singer in Scotland. They (Singer) used their initials followed by the last two digits of the date until later on in the war, &...

    It's quite possible the number could have been freshened up there, although they more typically stamped them. But all is possible.

    So, it would appear to be an Israeli mark, you reckon? An acceptance mark perhaps?

    Yes, Bri, re the 4T's we're on the same page. Lots of the Savage conversions are indeed less Telescope rifles as...

    I agree with 22SqnRAE - I think the history of this rifle has been reasonably pieced together from careful observation of it. As mentioned, the only outstanding question being who effected the .22...

    Agree with Bindi2, but as a minor practical point, especially if the mags have been given a gobby coat of suncorite; they sometimes bind against the trigger guard bow. Have a look at the mag when you...

    What you have is, effectively then, a N/No9 rifle, but probably converted by a civvy gunsmith here in the UK to that spec. Interestingly, back in the 90's I bought from a school five such converted...

    Again, only my tuppence worth, but I'm inclined to agree with Brian & Lee Enfield. I have never seen nor heard of an authentic Savage rifle without the US Property mark. The few I've seen or heard of...

    Not sure about Germany Rob, but France, Belgium, Holland & Italy all received substantial numbers of Lee Enfields. Yes, it was the font of the engraving that first caught my eye, too.....

    Perhaps a reference to the Mk1 'Singer' rear-sights being obligatory rather than the Mk2 'battle sight'??

    If the date is 1944 then you would not expect there to be a V in the serial number at all. Thanks for the additional photo's, by the way. The serial numbering on both the butt socket & the rear face...

    More questions first TRAMO! It is a genuine 4T so don't fret about that. However, I can't make up my mind about the markings on the butt socket. The rifle may have been renumbered at some point or...

    Hi Roy. I'd completely forgotten about that old thread, though my postings relate to the first bracket that I acquired. I saw a Delft made Mk3 scope a couple of years ago at the International Arms...

    I don't think it's a modern repro Gil. Look at the surface of the casting carefully - that's patination. I would not expect to see a N92 on it as it is not a Dalgleish bracket - just more like one...
  22. Unusual No32 Scope Bracket - possibly Dutch.

    A few years ago I turned up an unusual No32 bracket which came from a Dutch collector/dealer, who gave it a definite provenance to the Dutch armed forces, it being manufactured for them probably in...

    You can say that again Brian. It was one of the worst, most messily marked rifles I've ever seen. I suppose that should have given us a clue it was a Faz product!!
