Just wanted to throw out a Hi. I have been looking/lurking for a long time. Finally bought two Enfields, a No1 MkIII* and what I believe to be No4 Mk1/2. The markings are faint so its hard to be fore sure. The No1 was factory refitted in 1955 and is matching #s. The No4 was brought in by CIA and believe it to be a mix match of parts. I am okay with that as I got both for $500 and I am a shooter. I buy old rifles to enjoy shooting them. Anyways I live in the Texas Panhandle and plan on getting a deer this year with one of the rifles. 
Courage is not the absence of fear, it is taking action in spite of it.

Thanks guys everyone! I did a little better looking with a flashlight and found both of the rifles to be matching. I am definitely pumped. I am a shooter more than a collector but having rifles like these is great. I am a huge history buff. My wife doesnt understand, she just sees guns........
