he!!o everyone looking to purchase a No4 Mk1 Lee Enfield but I’m curious to what year it was manufactured in. The serial number is V36688. So I believe if not mistaking that it is a B.s.a manufactured Lee Enfield. This serial number is located in 3 spots, the receiver, the rear wrist band and bolt. The rear wrist band also contains a very worn marking but it almost looks like an M/ 47 c, as well as the small mechanical piece above it I believe it’s the safety contains the same mark but more clearer. Manly concerned with the year it was manufactured and if it was by B.s.a. thank you for your time and hope to hear from you soon.

welcome , and congrats on your aquisition , 

yes , BSA was assigned the 30000-39999 serial numbers , they used single letter prefixes in that series , so it is indeed a BSA made rifle , this range falls in the 1944 date , post some photos more info may be added by others

Thank you very much for the feed back, that deffinelty puts my mind at ease, for I was looking for an older dated rifle that hopefully saw some action and was a B.S.A manufactured here a few pics if you would like to take a look at them.

Again if you have a cell phone snap a picture of the wrist socket and left side of the receiver.

Even a pawn shop should allow this.

Good luck

Good evening guys I uploaded a picture of the reciever and rear wrist band. Any comments on it? The serial number is on the reciever as well just really hard to see but a again it is V36688. Any other information about this rifle would be great or clarification. Thank you gents.

i can just make out the receiver markings but it certainly looks a legit well worn no4 to me , BSA makings seem in correct places , im not sure what is above the current number and there looks to be an old number below ??
