I'm new to the world of Enfields. I am currently trying to research the differences between these two stocks. I was hoping someone here would want to make my research go a little faster Big smile

I recently purchased these as a lot of NO.4 MK1 stocks. I received them today and noticed they where a little different.

Edit: I purchased them for a NO.4 MK1 as they bother where labled for a NO.4 MK1. Does it matted as long as the both fit?

The one missing the back end of the forestock is for a No4Mk2.  That will just need a through bolt to make it work. The other stock is a No4Mk1 with the early version upper hand guard. They should both readily accept tour receiver.

The Mk2 rifle has a "Hung Trigger", basically a metal bracket attached to the receiver butt socket which has the trigger attached to it. The cut out is where the bracket goes.
The Mk1 doesn't have such a bracket & the trigger is attached to the bottom metal.
To do it properly you could attach a Mk2 stock to a Mk1 rifle & add the cross bolt it uses instead of a riveted strap, but you'd need to make a "filler" as the bolt compresses the wood against the "missing" bracket.
You can't do it the other way round because the wood would block the action from being inserted. (Unless you cut that area out).
The screws & nuts are available from
