Regulating consisted of ensuring all bearing surfaces are correctly adjusted in the fore-end. The standard muzzle end bearing was removed
and a new centre bedding was inletted which meant the last 12" of barrel was free floating.

were rifles with improved & modified bedding arrangements

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