Found another No4 Mk1 for sale today.
This one has been sporterized by Golden State Arms. I can get it for $175.00, which is what I'm going to do. I'm going to go through it,make sure it's safe to operate,clean it up better then what it is currently and go from there...

I have a Sante Fe 1941 Supreme, does yours say witch model you are getting? I like your clean lines and that the receiver isn't cut.

The barrel was bobbed already.
I got it home,took it apart, cleaned it up,put the ATI stock set on along with the S&K scope mount and Bushnell scope. Put a front sight protector on and put a five round magazine in it. Head space is fine. The bolt matches the receiver. It's definitely a Maltby made No4 Mk1,kinda a shame but, no use in crying over spilled milk now...

I actually put a spare front site protector on the last Sporter I bought. I like the look.

I went ahead and cut the barrel to 20" and installed an old Remington front ramp sight.
Any and all comments are welcome and encouraged​...

Goosic. Did you crown it in a lathe? I'm assuming front sites were drilled and tapped? I love the look of the front site hoop protector! What scope mount? Thanks!

No,I did not use a lathe. I have three different custom drill bits that I use that give you a 90°,60°,and 45° bevel. It takes time but well worth the effort. Yes,the barrel was drilled and tapped to accept the Remington front ramp sight. The scope mount is a S&K no drill no tap mount.
