    MK IV, Pattern A

    I have an excellent condition MK IV A Pattern with blade bayonet, but without any markings to indicate use or transfer to Nepal. I know nearly nothing about these rifles, I found 40 rounds of ammo manufactured in the mid 60s. This appears to be the more rare of the MK IV patterns.

    Is this unusual, can I shoot it?

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.

    The ammunition might be worth more to a collector.

    Many pictures of the markings on the Rifle would allows the experts to comment.

    A lot of older ammo came in 5-10 years back. Much of it is reported to go "Click_Bang". There is a more active martini forum over on the Britishmilitaria site. I have a MKIV and MKII, from the Nepal cash, that I shoot, and they are not perfect.
