Lee-Enfield No.4 mk1-S



The Lee-Enfield No.4 Mk.1 Savage is a bolt-action rifle that was used by the British military during World War II and beyond. The rifle was manufactured by the Savage Arms Company in the United States, and was a variation of the British Lee-Enfield rifle design.

To identify a Lee-Enfield No.4 Mk.1 Savage rifle, you can look for several distinctive features. Firstly, the "No.4 Mk.1'' marking on the receiver indicates that the rifle is a variant of the Lee-Enfield design. This specific model reads “No.4 Mk1*.” The asterisk next to the "No.4 Mk1" marking on a Lee-Enfield rifle receiver indicates that the rifle has undergone a modification or repair to improve its performance, and has been given a new designation to reflect its updated status. The rear sight was changed from an adjustable sight to a flip peep sight and eliminated the bolt release catch. This removed several parts from the weapon and eased the manufacturing process. Secondly, the Savage Arms Company markings should be present on the receiver, indicating that it was manufactured by Savage. This weapon also has a “U.S. Property” marked designation. The rifle should have a 10-round detachable box magazine and be chambered for the .303 British cartridge, which are defining features of the Lee-Enfield design. The rifle should have a distinctive rear sight, which is a simplified aperture sight compared to earlier Lee-Enfield models. Lastly, the wood stock should have a distinctive shape, with a prominent "hump" in the middle of the stock. 

During World War II, the No.4 Mk.1 Savage was used by the British Army and other Allied forces in combat. The rifle continued to be used by British and Commonwealth forces into the 1950s and 1960s, and was also used by some other countries, including India and Pakistan.
