What exactly was this item used for on the #4/Mk1 rifles? I have read the descriptions, but I just wanted a first hand account of what they were used for. Thanks!

Same as a stacking swivel on a No1. Three rifles could be stood in a teepee fasion. Look at the BSA logo and you will see stacked rifles.
I am sure that the british never fitted stacking swivels or rods to No4's but I think it was the Turkish that fitted them to the No4.

The No.4 Mk.2 could probably be "stacked" if the bayonets are fixed.
