    Yeah I wasn't expecting that group, at all. Winchester Super X is the cheapest brand we find here, typically. I had a few reloads with me as well, but didn't group great with them.

    If you want too shoot it Keep it
    macthing serial numbers dont count when it come to shooting.

    I have a No4 "clone T" done by myself incluting scope : A no 42 converted to No.32 mkIII specification.

    The picture show a result form a 15 round competition shooting at 200m in september 2017.
    shoot from a cold rifle in a little less than 15 min.

    Ammo: reloads ( 40 grais of Vihtavuori N150. 180 grain S&B FMJ) All my 3 Enfield's like that

    ( print only show last 10 round. but all 15 is count)

    Even a original T or macthing numbers will have done that better.

    And I will keep this riffel.

    Have been wandering about the Somme this last week but on my return home I was quite excited to see this thread with a lovely & genuine 4T. Agree entirely with Surpmil; the rifle is good, the serial has been gone over most likely because the originals, chiefly later in the war, were only lightly engraved. Hence one often sees them 'clarified' with stamps. The forend is also genuine & from (most probably) another 1944 made BSA 4T. Sykes (SL N74) woodwork seems for some reason almost ubiquitous on 1944 produced rifles. Ash cheekpieces are also a common finding on these rifles.

    I'd definitely give it house room!
