This time it's a 1941 Long Branch built at the Long Branch Arsenal near Toronto Canada.
when I first got it it looked like this. Bubba had a little fun but mercifully he left the metal pretty much intact.

After a lot of scrounging online and some elbow grease it turned out like this.


It still needs some work and I have some parts that will need to be replaced with correct ones as they are found but it is much better.
A couple pictures of it with the Savage built Enfield I posted earlier.


It's hard to see in the picture but the two rifles are not identical. the differences are a little deeper than the color of the stock.
The Long Branch was built in 1941 and is an early production No.4 Mk1.
the savage was built in 1943 and is a No.4 Mk1*. The * in the designation indicates that it is a later production rifle that in North American built Enfield No.4's means that it incorporated design changes to speed up production. British built rifles remained No.4 Mk1's with no * throughout the war.

Nice! One day I wish that I can get one of these rifles. This rifle if the first rifle I shot about 14 years ago. You happen to know what they go for on today's market?

Well I paid $50.00 for this one but obviously have more in it now. :lol: I have seen whole unmolested ones going from $150.00 to around $3000.00 for rare models and snipers. A lot depends on condition and rarity.
