    N°4MK1 data/serial?

    Spero di non aver sbagliato dove postare ...
    Sono in possesso di un N°4MK1 Fazakerley con questi marchi sul manicotto lato sinistro:
    ROF
    A
    T27204
    é mancante l'anno di produzione.
    E'possibile tramite il numero di serie risalire alla data?
    E' normale che non sia presente l'anno?
    Non presenta punzoni FTR, tutti i seriali corrispondono.
    Sarei veramente grato a chi collaborerà per darmi una risposta.
    Cordialmente ringrazio.

    For those that haven't discovered google translate, here's his question...


    N ° 4MK1 data / serial?
    I hope I have not made a mistake where to post ...
    I am in possession of a N ° 4MK1 Fazakerley with these marks on the left side sleeve:
    ROF
    TO
    T27204
    the year of production is missing.
    Is it possible to go back to the date via the serial number?
    Is it normal that the year is not present?
    It does not have FTR punches, all the serials correspond.
    I would be really grateful to those who will work to give me an answer.
    Sincerely thank you.
    Regards, Jim

    A better pic would help.

    Skennertons book would put it some where between 1944 to 1947

    I think I can make out a badly stamped '42' on the butt socket, too. IIRC Faz early war production had the manufacturer details & date crudely hand stamped onto the butt socket as has the OP's rifle. Sometime mid-war they changed to neatly, but very shallowly engraving the details on the receiver side wall flat below the folded rear sight. I've certainly seen 1943 dated rifles with this latter style of marking.

    Grazie per la risposta, purtroppo sotto il mirino posteriore nel receiver non c'è nessun riferimento di data,comunque sembra anche a me che sul manicotto sia stampato anche se in maniera confusa il 42, il prefisso T prima del seriale può dirci qualcosa? Se hai altre informazioni fammi sapere, veramente grazie per il tuo impegno.

    La lettera T prima del numero seriale ti suggerisce altro?
    Grazie per la tua risposta se hai qualcosa di nuovo fammi sapere.
