    Posted: May 24 2009 at 7:02pm
Hi Guys
 
I have a No4 Mk1 that the guy who sold it advised was an ex Canadian Ranger rifle.  It has matching numbers N5940, is marked 1942, and I believe it has Canadian Arsenal markings.
 
Can anyone tell me anything about this rifle, I can find little on the internet??
 
Does the rifle have any collector value, or should I sell it for another No4?? 
 
Will post a photo when I figure out how.
 
Thanks for your help.

LB is for Canadian Long Branch manufactured rifles. Should be stamped in several locations on most parts

It should also be marked No4 Mk1* if it is a Longbranch made in 1942

Hoadie will be the one to fill you in on Ranger Rifles. They still issue them to the Inuit rangers/guides for protection from Bears etc.

BEARS my ass! They issue them to the Rangers for front line defence of the north,as well! Yes-its absolutley true..Longbranch Enfields are still issued to this very day-to the Canadian Rangers.These are Inuit that live there.They are are first line(probobly ONLY line) of defence in the far north.The reason they are still used is because there has never been a rifle found/developed yet,that can perform as reliably & accuratley/consistently as the Enfield.They use the Longbranch,because they were made here(outside Toronto)& evidently Crown stores must still have a bundle of them.
Lee Enfields are STILL very popular in the hunt camps here-due to reliability,cost & accuracy issues.

No, I think it is because Matron has been slack with her rounds.

It's friday night, so hopefully she will be round to hand out meds, give kerosine baths and enemas soon.
But the winters coming,

And the snow will cover tracks,

And I'll be watching,

Because I'm hunting you
