This example has been fully regulated by Fultons of Bisley, this would of been of the time when the No4 was the main target rifle used at Bisley.

Regulating consisted of cutting away all the bearing surfaces
in the fore-end and inserting new hard wood inserts and rebedding. The standard muzzle end bearing was removed
and a new centre bedding was inletted which meant the last 12" of barrel was free floating.

At the time there was two classes of Service Rifle which was Service Rifle A & Service Rifle B. "A" was standard military set up & "B"
were rifles with improved & modified bedding arrangements

Regulated Enfields could only be shot in the Service Rifle B catergory

The action has "Sold out of Service" stamps and is also marked Regulated by Fulton
