Well Bud I will be able to tell you that when the Rifle comes in , I hope.
Man we just got a deluge of rain again and I was stuck out in the gun shop taking mesurments . Had to run to the house through the rain I'm soaked . now I'm getting a lesson on how to run a Business from my Wife. this is taking all the fun out of having a shop. to bad I couldnt get her to take care of all the boring stuff....
Oh by the way the Rifles should be in in about 4 working days hopefully.

After WW II, BSA sold all of its No. 4 production equipment to Pakistan.  By the time this happened, Mk 2 was the standard, so the equipment had been modified to this standard.  Pakistan DID make Mk 2s, but not much is known about them, especially quantity made.  Have seen a few and they were very well made.  Left side of the receivers were marked POF No. 4 Mk 2.
Century has been advertising them, BUT they are hung up in transit/Customs, so there is no estimate as to when they will be available.

  Rest assured they have a solid reputation providing the Goldern Rule of only using 7.62 Nato ammo through them. There were a Number of  Mk111s converted  as well & I have seen many of these used for many years ! There was always a issue with feeding in these rifles,yet most of the people I have known with these rifles never comlained of this issue.

Jona the No# 4 MK1 longbranch is still in Bond , the No#4 MKII is up for grabs.
So what I'm reading from yall , is that this Rifle is chamberd for .308?  when I talked to my buddie he had 14 No#1 MK III s left when I got mine , Dont know how many No#4 MKII s were left .

So do you like #4 Mk II's? What do like best about them? What do you like least?
 
Would you buy one again?
 
I plan on checking one out at the next large gun show if any are there.

Pity no one is importing those Paki No4Mk2's here into Australia, I will gladly pick one up.  
But the winters coming,

And the snow will cover tracks,

And I'll be watching,

Because I'm hunting you
