The site can't find your file, that's where the problem is.
Is it hosted on line somewhere?
Is it really big? There's a limit on the size the server will accept.

Looks like a No4 Mk1 to me, with a somehow shortened barrel. To see if it started life as a No5, the thing to do is check the weight lightened areas. Also the rear sight will be marked differently (in terms of range, can't recall exactly offhand but it only goes up to something like 800 yds).
But the markings sure would be interesting to see....

..we didn't burn the whole thing down..the fire got put out & then they white-washed it.(Hence - the "White House".
Funny thing about that is they didn't believe that our side was marching on washington..until we were on the front lawn!

I see no pictures.
Just one broken link from much earlier.
Locosmith: can you give me a link by PM to where the images are stored so I can try to post them fro you somehow?
Just these light descriptions give us nothing to work with.

I got the images a few days ago, but unfortunately no forum name, user ID, post link & so on & I just figured out where they were supposed to go!
Sorry for the delay, here they are:
To me it looks like a real No5 that's been retro fitted with a cut down No 4 "Tanker" style stock?

Click the links to open them.
