No4. 7.62 CONV
(L39A1)
Target Rifle
Royal Ordnance Factory Enfield 1969
Calibre 7.62x51
Price: £695

Excellent Condition

The No4 7.62 CONV is identical to the L39A1 and shares the same serial number range. The CONV rifles are quite scarce and are a mystery, it is beleived they were built for military
rifle clubs and have been seen in some of the RAF shooting clubs.

This particular example was manufactured at Enfield in 1969 and is number 101. I have just had to have this rifle proofed as it has never had civillian proof, only the 19T military proofs.
If it had been manufactured for the civillian market it would have gone to one of the UK proof houses for proof.

This rifle conforms exactly to the L39A1 on page 513 of the Lee Enfield Book by Ian Skennerton, it has a half stocked forend fitted with a Enfield hammer foged heavy barrel
built on a No4 Mk2 action. It was designed as a single loader and the 303 magazine was simply used as a loading platform.
The butt pad is correct and has the CR prefix part number.

The Enfield hammer-forged barrel is fitted with Parker-Hale 'FS22B' foresight tunnel, the receiver is mounted with a Parker-Hale 'PH5' target sight with
1/4 MOA Adjustment

The heel of the butt is marked with a "L" indicating it is fitted with a Long Butt.

This rifle is in excellent condition & is the rarer variant of the 7.62 series of rifles with a low serial number from the first year of manufacture
