No4 Mk1*
Sterling Conversion
Savage 1944
Serial No 67C4592
Calibre 7.62mm
Price: £700

Very GoodCondition.

Savage manufactured No4 Mk1* that has undergone (FTR) Factory Thorough Repair at Fazakerly Post War

It looks to have kept its Savage marked Components during the overhaul process

Later it has been converted to 7.62mm using the Sterling Conversion.

Sterling sent some of these to overseas Goverments for review & possible sales, this may have been one of the examples sent to India as it
has a Indian Arsenal stamp on the butt

This is a correct conversion as indicated by the additional 7.62 ejector drilled & screwed to the side of the receiver,
its not that common to see the correct ejector fitted

There's an interesting story behind the Sterling Conversion that lead to legal disputes with the Royal Ordnance Factory

By the time the legal dsiputes were settled the need for Large Scale 7.62mm Conversions of No4 Rifles had come & gone
