    Looking once more at the number: could that faint letter be an "R"? And would R10177 be a plausible number?



    And since the barrel is apparently v.g.c. and looks much cleaner than the receiver: could it have been rebarreled?

    But the previous post makes the most important point: regardless of who/when/where, it is a No.4 that is eminently fixable without fear of damaging the so-called "collector" value.

    Refurbish and enjoy shooting with it!

    Looks similar to this one, which this board decided some years ago was a BSA. (I changed the cocking-piece myself as the pull-off was awful)

    I'd agree it's likely a BSA - the very rough machining marks on the body are absolutely typical of early BSA production (1941 & 1942). I do not think they were added after the event in the case of the first rifle either. I have several similar B41 & B42 receivers in a tat box awaiting the day when I find the enthusiasm to build them back up into complete rifles....

    Thought I'd post an update on this Enfield. I finished it up this evening, and thought I'd share.
