Number 4 Mark 2 .303 dated 1953 RSAF Fazakerley Factory
British Army Service Rifle
This 1953 manufactured RSAF Fazakerly Number 4 Mark 2 British Army Service Rifle was the last version of the Lee Enfield service rifle which dates back
to 1889 when the Lee Metford .303 Mk1 entered production at the RSAF Enfield and later at RASF Sparkbrook.
The Number 4 Mark 2 has an intergrated trigger unlike the WW2 Number 4 Mk1
which had the trigger attached to the woodern forend.
The Number 4 series was the first Lee Enfield production rifles to have a floating barrel rather than a fix barrel like on the SMLE or Long Lee's.
This rifle like all British Manufactured Number 4's has a five groove barrel and with the Number 4 Mark 2 has the 'Singer' rear sight fitted as standard.
Nice original Number 4 Mark 2 .303 dating to 1953 matching numbers
Please Note : The last Lee Enfield service rifle to come off the production line was in May 1955, which is 68 years ago. None of our Lee Enfield's we sell regardless of year of manufacture will do better than one and a half minute of angle on any range.
All Lee Enfield's service rifles we sell are ex-military historic service rifles not target rifles.
