and satisfied my craving for another wood stocked rifle at the same time Big Grin

 
Lee Enfield No.4 Mk1 Built by Savage Arms around 1944 best I can tell.
After finaly getting the cosmoline cleaned up it looks a lot better than I originaly thought it would.

They don't make rifles like that anymore!!!
 
Now try and see if you can track down the micrometer aperture sights that can be fitted to it...

My favourite gun shop in the city where I live has one of these for sale. It's a Savage like yours and in as good a condition (mint barrel) but this one has the aperture sights!!! If its around when I finally have paid off this layby I currently have then its mine!!!
 
Does yours have "US Property" on the left side of the receiver???

Yes it does.  The barrel on this one kind of scared me at first but after a thorough cleaning it looks very good.
I can't wait to try it out.

Beautiful rifle, I have three SMLE's and love them. Slickest operating bolt around. Enjoy!
 
Excellent
