No,it does not come with screws,drills or taps. You are left to find those on your own. RSM didn't have the drills or taps either but it came with screws. I have one as a backup BTW.

Sarco has the full kit, which includes drills, taps and screws. These must be all from the same manufacturer?

No,not at all. The one I bought from Numrich and the one I bought from RSM look somewhat similar but are built complete different from one another. No interchangeability at all except for the mount itself. Neither of mine came with any instructions as well. Luckily,I'm smarter then I tend to let on and figured it out fairly quickly.

Numrich lists a Mk I and Mk II.  The Mk II should have 1 MOA clicks, is that true?  Just have to find the correct size screws.

Shot the No. 4 Mk 2 7.62 today, I was pleasantly surprised. After zeroing the scope, here’s what the 200 yard target looked like shooting off the bench.

The first 5 shots grouped at just under 1.0 inch, less than 1/2 MOA. 10 shots grouped at 3.0inches, 1.5 MOA. This is why 3 or 5 shot groups can be misleading about how accurate a rifle and load can be. But on the SR Target, it’s a 100-8x. Might be a candidate for a Sniper conversion.



The load:

Case: DA 62 Neck Sized
Primer: CCI #200
Powder: 40.5 gr Re 15
Bullet: 168 gr SMK
COL: 2.80

i do not know a lot of the 7.62 enfeilds but i did once own a charnwood conversion of that caliber , it had an extreemly tight chamber and was very picky of the ammo you fed it , i had the best luck with radway green , still have two canisters of that , but ... all i had back then was military surplus i was not in possession of any commercial rounds let alone custom hand loads , i kinda wish i had that one back ,

Your magazine looks to me to be one for the Ishapore 2A1 rifle. They work well in No 4's.

Yes, the cartridges feed just fine from the magazine. But I would like to find a solution to reliable empty case ejection. I ground a bit off the inside edge of the extractor to push the case further to the left side of the reciever, works about 50% of the time.

It’s somewhat of an orphan rifle, I’d like to shoot it in competition, but does not meet the “as issued” rules here in the US. And if I modified by adding a repro No. 32 scope, it won’t meet the Vintage Sniper Rifle rules being not .303. Didn’t the Brits rebarrel the No. 4 in 7.62 for Sniper work? Or did these all have heavy weight barrels?

Further when fully chambered?
That's interesting it should disengage & move out, away from the case in the final 1/16"or so of bolt travel!
If you cycle the bolt slowly you can see the front edge of the claw is pushed to the right by the sloping cut in the breech!

On the one I use, I modified the leading edge of the left-hand side rear magazine lip to give an ejector lug similar in principle to the 7.62 Enfield ones.

No, the area I ground material off of the extractor is the inner edge between the claw and screw lug so that when the bolt is pulled back, the extractor spring pushes the extractor slightly deeper into the slot in the bolt head. This pushes the empty case over to contact the left side of the action. The 7.62 case head is smaller in diameter than the .303 and doesn’t drag along the left side of the reciever when withdrawing the bolt. It does now, but still not as positive as the .303

Great looking setup Brit.  Goosic too.
If you want to try another bullet the A Max is a good choice.
I use Varget and H4895 for powder.
Though, it's for my M1A NM.

Ok gotcha now. Does it eject when the base hits the ejector screw?

Why not just use an L42 magazine ?

Why not get a .308 extractor claw and use that?
