They did not make a sporterised version of any of the No4 rifles.
But many were modified by civilian gunsmith's after they were sold by the military.
If it is an original No4 Mk1 T; it would be worth getting it back to original military specification.
They are very collectaible and are already very expensive. However value of the originals means that there are also fake ones around; made up from standard No4 Mk1's.
It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice!

OP....we need many more photos especially the left wrist side near the butt/fore end area as well as the left receiver wall to help determine if that is indeed a sniper rifle. Is there an S51 stamped on the butt under the area where the butt fits into the socket?

Any possibility that it is a L42A1.
Does it take the .303 rounds or .308 NATO rounds.

L42 ? Not with that scope and barrel profile. Sorry Wink

Still not a bad set.

i think we need more closeups - in the end it has been sported i think and all original bits would make it a candidate for refurb , we like what we see but we are not certain what we are seeing without the needed photos , these are a specific item with much more credibility when verified ,
