Confirmation of the 1943 production volume would validate the fact that LB No4 T's were manufactured in 1943. We have 2 good serial numbers.

    Any other 1943 LB No4 T's out there?

    Ron, I have a 1943 LB 4T serial 39Lxxxx, scope was originally what looks like 10-C according to the markings on the wrist of the stock but I when I acquired the rifle it came with scope 271-C.
    If anyone knows of that scope 10-C, I'd be v. keen to hear of it...

    Many years ago DD I think I used to own the 39L rifle that is now yours. I had a mis-matched Mk1 or Mk1A REL on it, but in some years of keeping my eyes open for the matching scope I never managed it........but never give up, it may be out there just waiting for you to find it!

    Just noticed we mentioned it in a previous thread!

    Not quite, but 11-C is known to exist.
