Lee Enfield #4 MkI*
U.S. Property Marked by Savage
marked Enfields were part of the Lend-Lease program that we
used to help out England during WW2. They were made by the
Stevens subsidiary of Savage Arms.
This rifle is a nice example. The walnut
wood has the usual dents and dings from use and handling over
the years. The rear handguard has a repaired crack otherwise the wood is very
good/excellent for the age. The metal parts are losing some
for the finish in places but there has never been any rust
to cause pitting in the past. The action works smoothly and
the 2 groove rifled bore is very good and would rate 8+/10 for condition.
All numbers match including the bolt. I have had three of
these Savage/Stevens Enfields and none were dated but they were
produced between 1941 and 1945. The serial number puts this
one probably somewhere late 1942 to early 1943.
Overall a very nice, clean rifle that
would be a good shooter and an excellent addition to any collection.
