    Traded for a no 4 yesterday. Not sure where it's from. On the left side i found No4MKIROF{F}6/43, the ser.DC28===A on the barrel it has a circle
    with a D in it and 2 stamps with the crown one has 25 underit and the other53 they both have an N under them also. And the CAI importer mark.

    It was very crusty Barrel was full of grease the muzzel looked dark but the rifleing ran all the way to the end so i brought it home. Barrel cleaned up alright just a little rusty in the lands toward the chamber end the rest of the barrel is fine toward the muzzle it's great! Think it's from getting to hot?

    Won't feed the first round bolt just misses the rims if you kinda cock the bolt down it might if it does the round will jump up and jam into the upper left side of the chamber does better with the clip out of my no1 but not good.
    I've tweeked the lips went from one problem to another.

    It shoots good!!! very good off the hood of the car last night shot into an 1 1/2" at 40y.

    Got to get one of those long rifles now!

    I'm not sure how much you know about Enfields, but that rifle was produced in England at the Royal Ordnance Factory in Fazakerley, which is designated by the ROF(F) marking. Being a 1943 model, it's a nice example of WWII craftsmanship. Nice piece of history! Congrats!
