Serial No A14861
Very Close to Mint Condition.
The No4 Mk2 was approved in January 1949 and deliveries of completed rifles
commenced in July 1949 and were only manufactured at the Fazakerley Royal
Ordnance Factory in Liverpool. Manufacture ceased circa 1955.
There were approximately 450,000 newly made No4 Mk2s manufactured at Fazakerley.
The main deference between the Mk1/Mk1* & the Mk2 is that the trigger
is mounted on the action body, where previously the trigger was mounted
on the trigger guard. This was to overcome problems with trigger pull.
The Mk2 has a transverse screw through the rear of the forend where as
the Mk1 has a tie plate. The woodwork on these was beech.
This rifle was manufactured in 1955 & retains nearly
100% of the original finish.
The original Mk1 (Singer) sight is still present. The action, bolt &
fore-end have matching serial numbers.
It is stocked in beech which is in excellent condition.
The fore-end has the matching serial number stamped on it. The butt is
standard length and has the brass butt plate.
The trigger has the correct 2-stage pull. The bore is in very good condition
and has the standard 5 groove rifling.
This one is fitted with a "N" Normal Lenght
This one had the magazine restricted to single shot as
it came from germany, I have removed the restriction but the magazine
does have 2 dowel holes.
The two dowel holes in the magazine are not visible unless the mag is
To make this rifle 100% perfect it would benefit from a new magazine
