** British Shirley No. 4 Mk I (T) Enfield With Scope

.303 caliber, 25.25" barrel, S/N X30017.  Receiver, bolt, and stock match, buttstock mismatched.  Oil black and stove paint finish with Canadian marked stock.  Blade front sight with Mk I rear sight.  Left side of receiver marked with "T" marking indicating reconversion as a "telescopic model".  Socket marked with serial number, "TR" conversion marking and 1945 date.  Also marked with import marking over what appears to be a Shirley "M47C" manufacturing stamp.  Barrel marked with two-groove rifling.

Fitted with No. 32 Mk I scope with acceptance stamp on Holland and Holland mounts.  Scope non-matching.


Good condition.  Most of the finish remains with some minor wear to sharp edges and working parts.  Stock shows only minor handling marks.  Some flaking of paint on scope, which appears to have been factory refinished.  Bore is good; mostly bright with some old grime and visible edges to rifling.   

Estimate: $1,500 - $2,500
