The rifle on top is the Savage No4Mk1* that has the L8 barrel that was still in its wax wrap when I purchased it. The barrel that is.
The bottom rifle is a Maltby No4Mk1/2 with a M47C barrel  on it with an unknown round count through it. 
Both rifles have been setup virtually identical as far as bedding is concerned.  The 7.62mm Enfield uses a 6-24×44 BSA optic whereas the .303 Enfield uses a 4-12×40 Tasco optic. The 7.62 Enfield has the sighting system made to mimic the No4Mk1 T rifles and can be removed if needed to access the flip up iron sight with no loss in a zero when reinstalled. The .303 Enfield has  the "Scope Only" option. Both rifles would make for excellent hunting rifles. They can be made to shoot 1.0 MOA but typically hold a 1.75 MOA on average with the .303 edging out the 7.62. My concern however rests solidly in knowing how accurate my fully furnished and unmodified,  "except for the currently mounted scope" No4Mk1 is, compared to the rifles mentioned above. Currently, I have achieved a very respectful 2.0 MOA on average using the original MkII ladder sight so, it is with shear curiosity and necessity to see if I can shrink that MOA using an old school target scope...
