    India Pattern No 1**

    I stumbled across this old girl recently. I have never encountered one. IP 1** 1904 upgraded 1915. Is it unusual to find one in this configuration?

    India Pattern Mark 1** I.P.

    I have had two examples for almost twenty years, the first is a Enfield 1903 Mark 1** I.P. that was rebuilt R^F 1914 serial number 37988, also matching is the fore-end wood and rear sight (which has a working windage knob). A new barrel from India with a matching serial number. The volley sight dial plate has been milled flat.

    The second example is a BSA 1904 Mark 1** that was rebuilt R^R 1917 serial number 35742 over A, has a matching nose cap and rear sight but the windage is fixed soild. Also a new barrel from India which matches the serial number.

    Both bores are excellent, I left all the original markings on the butt stocks as they are part of the history

    Just in Pic#1 in Post #4 RCS the bolt head looks like it has been quilted (Hit) with a hammer as there is a definite deformation of metal in the form of a ridge.!
    Maybe their proof loads were really hot.....

    Thanks for the input. Mine is mismatched but the metal and barrel seem to be in good shape. Did not pay much I think I am learning to trust my instincts.
    I think I will clean her up and check the headspace.

    I.P. Pattern

    These Indian Pattern rifles were upgraded to No 1 Mark 111 standards but always known as the Mark 1** I.P.

    I have a Pattern 1903 bayonet for one of my rifles too
