Description:

This is an exceptional, like new original No.4 Mk I (T) matching sniper rifle rig. These rifles were the standard British sniper rifles developed in the late 1930s and used until the early 1960s. The receiver side wall is marked "No. 4 Mk I (T)", and the butt socket is marked "M47C/1944//R35125/TR". It comes with the original and correctly matching No. 32 MKIII scope that is marked "TEL.STG.No 32 MKIII/O.S. 2039 A/No 24571/broad arrow proof" along with the red "W" and blue "B" indicating this scope is both waterproof and has the bloomed lens coating. The scope mount is also correctly stamped with the matching serial number (35125/R), and the rings are numbered "A34" and "A35" on the right side. The scope number (24571) is correctly stamped on top of the wrist of the buttstock. This excellent rifle also comes with its original WWII matching heavy canvas scope bag. The outside of the bag is correctly marked with both the rifle serial number (R35125) and scope number (24571). The rifle itself is fitted with the standard blade front sight and the tangent military rear sight with the fine tune adjustment. It is also fitted with its original matching numbered bolt assembly. The bolt head is marked with a "0" indicating a tight headspace. It is fitted with its original, correct wartime smooth semi-pistol grip stock with the standard proofmarks, matching serial number (35125) on the forestock and correctly stamped "S51" on behind the pistol grip area. The buttstock is fitted with a wartime pot metal buttplate with butt trap compartment and the correct screw-on cheekpiece. The scope is complete with an original British issue leather lens caps that are correctly British proofed. Complete with its original and matching WWII issue Chest S.A. No.15.Mk.1, green wooden storage/shipping container. The end of the case has the small metal frame that has the factory markings that reads: "BA10317- R35125/EQUIPMENT No. 4 T.W./RIFLE MKI/INSPECTION DATE".

Rating Definition:

Excellent with 99% of the original WWII British black painted exterior finish. The internal areas are still coated with protective cosmoline. The scope and scope mount also both retain 98% of their original black painted exterior finish with a hint of wear/finish wear on the front end of the scope tube under the leather cover. The optics are crystal clear. The storage/shipping chest is also in excellent condition with 95% of its original green painted finish with finish loss only on the edges and corners. A really top condition all matching and all original WWII British Enfield No.4 Mk I (T) sniper rifle rig.
