Good day all.

I was reviewing my Enfield collection and realized that about a third of it is duplicates so I figured a photo was in order.

 I thought some of the collectors just getting into Enfields/Milsurp might find it amusing.

From left:

Two Long Branch CNo.7s (1944 and 1945)

Two Long Branch 1942 No.4Mk1* MP (RCMP) marked. Serial numbers verified as original.

Two No.5Mk1s (1Faz. And 1 BSA)

Two No.IMkIII*s w/Canadian property marks (1 BSA and 1 Enfield) and #s matching

Two Ishy. 2A1s (actually one 2A and one 2A1)

 

 

So.What to do with so many duplicates?????

They are standard Long Branch No4.Mk1* that were issued to the RCMP. All arms so issued were marked with the Mounted Police MP property mark. So far only 1019 No.4s have been confermed as being issued to the RCMP which makes these a fairly rare Long Branch Variant.

Thanks all for your comments!!
