303 Enfield No4 Mk1 Rifle -

Recommended Posts

I have been trying to decide what to do with my sporterized 303 Enfield No4 Mk1 rifle. Since they removed the rear sight by milling it off I cannot do a traditional scope mount. Finally decided to do a scout scope build instead. Plus I will still be able to use stripper clips with the rifle and that should work great as a truck gun. Going with something like a 2-7x32 scope on it. Have any of you others done any sort of things like this? Curious your results afterwards. 90% of the shooting will be at the low power, but with a 303 cartridge I want to be able to reach out and touch someone with it should the need arise. Any gotchas to be aware of? Since the rifle was already "Bubba'd" I don't feel bad changing it up.Darren

Check out the Scout Rifle Community forum. There are a lot of guys there who trick out Enfields. I started a scout rifle project based on an 03-A3 but it got set aside and I never finished it. :smiley-innocent-halo-yellow:

Have to take her out this weekend and zero her. Just finished the Duracoat and re-assembly yesterday after letting it sit for 24 hours.Darren

Great project! :popcorn: I'm curious how you secured your scope mount base to the barrel?

Yeah, that's the back of my vest. I've had it about four years. Just thought it was time for a new avatar.

Hope these are small enough to load up in here. One is before, the other is after.Darrenpost-3-1315235798.jpg post-3-1315235806.jpg
Looks great! Are you going to install a back-up receiver sight?

I can't because the idiot who had the rifle before me bubba'd the rifle and milled the rear sight mount completely off. That is why I had to do a scout scope mount instead of a traditional mount. Plus I can still use the stripper clips with this rifle.Darren
