Product Information

A fabulous condition Second World War Lee Enfield No4 MKI* .303 rifle. This No4 was manufactured by Canadian firm Long Branch early in 1942. It has a very low and early serial number. Long Branch started production in 1941 with serial number 0L followed by four digits. Once 0L9999 was reached they then started again at 1L0001 and so on. Very few were made that year with observed serial numbers indicating that around an estimated 15,000 rifles were completed. 1942 saw the first full years production with serial numbers in the 1L5*** range continuing from the previous years build. From these figures we can deduce that serial batch starting 5L**** was reached early in 1942. By the end of 1942 serial number 21L**** was reached. This indicate that this is around number 41,232nd. Incredible this rifle still has its original matching bolt.

These rifles were manufactured during WWII part of the 'lend lease" agreement between the US & British Governments to help arm Allied & Common Wealth forces during the war. Many of these rifles failed to make it to Europe due to the heavy loses inflicted on merchant shipping by German U-boats.

Comes fitted with an original Long Branch spike bayonet and canvas sling. Deactivated with a working action it can be cocked, stripped and dry fired.
