Lee Enfield No4 MK1 T Sniper

Recommended Posts

Back in the early summer of 2018, I purchased a No4 Mk1 T off gunbroker that had no scope or mount, only had the mounting pads screwed into the receiver. I got a repro No32 scope and mount and still have yet to sight this thing in, but thought I would share.

Rifle has the Holland and Holland stamps on the stock as it should, but neither the receiver nor the stock just behind the safety contain a serial number for a scope. Perhaps it just never had one issued?

Thanks guys! 

My initial plans were to zero the scope and then go deer hunting with it this year, but I didn’t end up making it out to do either!

Very nice rifle. Never seen any model of British sniper. I've seen pretty much everything else though. Is the complete rifle made by Holland and Holland or just the sniper stock?

These rifles were made with the regular infantry rifles and hand picked for the conversion by Holland and Holland is my understanding of it.

For anyone on here that either owns or is even remotely interested in the development, use and improvements of the No 4 Mk1 T rifles, check out this book by Steve Houghton. 

There is a limited number of these being printed and I have found it to be a very useful wealth of information on my rifle. It includes rifles from WW1 all the way through to the most modern in British service. 

Here is Ian McCollum’s book review and a link to purchase the book can be found in the description text.

I have quite a few Enfields, but this is my holy grail gun. I just never could bring myself to spend what they were bringing close to 10 years ago. Now I’m kicking myself for not getting off my wallet then, because all Enfields have gone up in price, especially the sniper rifles.
