I recently purchased the aforementioned rifle. It now represents the 5th Enfield in my collection. I note that before I make the following comment. The barrel and receiver share the same serial number. In my limited experience restoring Enfield rifles, I have not run across one as marked up as this one. The knox form barely has any room for additional stampings.

Rather than as a bazillion questions in a single post, please allow me to ask a first question.

at the rear of the read site, where one might expect to see the letters "HV" instead the in the marking "IV".

Might one of the forum members be able to suggest the significance and decipher the "IV" marking?

I thought I would ask before attempting to shoot the weapon in case this marking suggest not shooting "spitzer" loaded ammunition, i.e., only shooting round nose in the particular rifle.

Thanks in advance for your attention to this matter.
