Here's a video, albeit a little late, showing the arrival of my Lee Enfield No 4 Mk 1 from Southern Ohio Gun. This one was made at the B.S.A factory in Shirley in 1943. It's a true Mk 1 Enfield, not one of the * (or "star") models that came out later in the war. In this video, you'll see the arrival of the gun as I received in from Southern Ohio Gun (or SOG), plus my initial trials out at the range and the results of my first 15 shots at 50 yards. Then the 2nd half of the video is a review of the gun and the service I received from SOG, plus a little insight about the history of this particular gun and some of the marking on the rifle.

I do not completely disassemble this rifle in this video, although I plan to do that in another video series soon. I have not found an assembly/disassembly video specific to this model on Youtube, so I feel obligated to do one eventually. And in that same video, I'll go over a lot of the markings in more detail on this rifle. If you thought a Mosin Nagant had a lot of marks, what until you buy one of these guns. There were 3 manufactures in England (BSA, Maltby, and Fazakerly), plus another factory in Canada (Long Branch) and one in America (Savage Arms). Then you had dozens of subcontractors that made specific parts for these guns, each one of them with their own marks. It's quite amazing once you start doing the research!

Anyway, enjoy the video!
