    Canadian Ranger No. 4 Mk 2 w/ Provenance and Acc's

    https://www.gunpost.ca/firearms/rifl...nance-and-accs

    Not my area of expertise, but I thought that prior to being issued the Colt C-19 (C19 Ranger Rifle)/( Tikka T3 CTR bolt action rifle), the Canadianicon Rangers were issued with either Long-Branch No. 4 Mk 1* or the EAL No. 4 Mk. 1 Military pattern rifles.

    This rifle has been sold, so I don't know how long it will be up on the net.

    Any comments?

    A long time now.

    Comment: over-priced.

    All of the items he has for sale tend to be pricey, but the heart wants what the heart wants.

    Question is, were the Canadianicon Rangers issued the No. 4 Mk. 2, or is he selling a "Irish Contract" Fazakerley?

    Some Canadian Rangers were issued No4MK2 ROF rifles, certainly the majority were No4MK1* made by Longbranch. There are roughly 33 Rangers in our local patrol group. I have personally viewed all the issued rifles! During exercises which involved numerous other patrols I tried as best without being too nosey and found the results to be much the same.

    A friend of mine did armorer here for the unit HQ for a time and stated clearly that he'd had every manufacturer and every mark and feature seen in #4 rifles in his supplies. That was back in the end of the '80s too...
