Just thought Iíd share a few shots of some recent purchases.

Top is an un-issued Savage No.4Mk.1* Literally mint and of course all matching.

Second is a í45 No.2Mk.1* made at Enfield. Not mint but nice and original and all matching as well.

Webley and Enfield pistols look very similar. I think Webley sold the design to the British Government. All I know for sure is theyíre a hoot to shoot!

Savage stopped dating there rifles early on so itís not easy to say. Best guess would be 1943 or so.

If memory serves it was 1944 but yes when production stopped they shipped the remaining parts up to Long Branch. I have seen a few late war Long Branch rifles with the odd Savage marked part on it. Because all Savages were built during the war and under Brit. contract itís almost imposable to find one that wasnít put into service as soon as it was built. Iím usually a Long Branch collector but how often are you going to find a war produced Enfield in un-issued condition?

Nice rifle.  Not much of a fan of handguns.  Safe queens is all there good for.  A sling shot is more deadly.
I've seen the future and I don't like it.

Enfield Revolvers are an important part of the war time Enfield story. No.4 rifles werenít produced at Enfield during the war. The .380 (38S&W) round that the pistol is chambered in is rather anemic but itís light, easy to carry and easy to shoot. Iíd rather this than nothing at all but would much rather have my S&W Mod.28 in .357 Mag. Cool

White Rhino I donít know what to say. Works fine for me and a few of my friends that have looked at the page.

 Hoadie , are these Savage rifles available ?
My '43 Savage is a restored bubba , without the US PROPERTY stamp.  There is no evidence of any grinding but that does not rule out a very well done scrub job.
I made sure all the parts where Savage , but I had probs finding  correct stocks so I settled for a unissued Beechwood set from Numrich which worked out pretty good .
I couldn't help but taking the "restoration" a step further however...Wink
