Lee-Enfield No.4 Mk.2 Battle Rifle; 1954 Royal Ordnance Factory Fazakerley, England Production/Irish Contract/South African Acceptance Mark; .303 British Beautiful, late production (December of 1954) Irish Contract Lee-Enfield No.4 Mk.2 with desirable Union of South Africa property mark...this nearly perfect Enfield was produced under contract with the Irish government at the ROF Fazakerley outside of Liverpool in 1954. A stunning example of the rifles in this run, 1954 Irish contract rifles were made with the same furniture and attention to detail as the RAF-contract guns produced later that year. Erroneously reported by Stratton to have been undelivered and unissued, it is now known that several the Enfield’s in this contract were, in fact, delivered and issued, with the Mk.2 being a popular competition rifle in the Irish military until well into the 1990's. More accurately, the bulk of these rifles were delivered, with a number remaining unissued and some remaining in storage in the UK. This rifle appears to be one of the latter, and is unusually marked with a South African military acceptance cartouche (U/Broad Arrow) on the wrist. Falling within the Irish contract serial number range, this rifle was presumably one of a small number diverted to fill holes in orders placed by South Africa. Appearing unissued and unfired since factory testing, the rifle was likely given a once over and accepted by a South African officer in the UK and subsequently never delivered. Alternately, it may have been delivered to South Africa, never issued, and sold as surplus in the 1990's. Apart from the South African mark, the rifle is a textbook and unusually striking example of one of the finest arms ever produced by a British arsenal. Undoubtedly a superior shooter, this rifle also represents a historic find for the Enfield enthusiast and would be worthy of a place in the most advanced collection. Condition: Essentially mint the rifle shows no sign of use and retains 99% of its suncorite-over-phosphate finish. Upon scrutiny, there are minute handling marks, which are attributable to storage and transit dings, but the jet-black finish appears completely unaged. However, there are couple areas near the front band that shows metal, Markings are well-struck, correct, and all numbered components are matching, to include the bolt handle, barrel, receiver, magazine and forearm stock. Import mark is on the barrel and the rifle displays correct BNP/Tonnage mark on the barrel and receiver ring. Beech wood stock is a particularly impressive pale, honey-blonde color with fine figuring. Rating as near mint in line with the rifle there are extremely light handling marks in places, there might have been a repaired and or add on to fill in a space not covered by enough wood on the stock near the rear wrist band top, no chips or cracks, and the markings on the wrist and forearm stock are crisply struck and finely preserved. Additionally, the buttstock shows no patina and retains a brilliantly rich brass tone. Mechanically, the rifle is flawless with perfectly smooth action, and the bore is as-new with no sign of use and traces of cosmoline that should be cleaned prior to shooting (see pictures). $45 Shipping is to cover all costs including insurance, bubble wrap, tape and box to ensure that your investment is protected during shipment and delivery to you.
