Apr 12, 2013 No. 4 Mk1 Enfield.Need Help Deciphering Markings; If this is your first visit. The serial number is stamped under 'No.4 Mk1 (F)' on the side of the receiver. Basic Enfield Identification and the Facts about Serial Numbers. Like the SMLE an all matching No4 or No5 will have all the serial numbers matching wherever they. No4 MkI; No4 Mk1/2. No4 Mk1/2; BSA 1916 ShT’22. To work out which factory that your No4 was made is to look at wrist markings where the serial numbers. 4 Mk 1 and No. 4 Mk 1* rifles were upgraded to Mk 2 specifications. These rifles are marked either No. 4 Mk 1/2 or No. They will also be marked FTR meaning Factory Through Repair. The Pakistani Ordnance Factory (POF) made both No. 2 Enfield rifles in limited quantities during the 1950’s and early 1960’s. Small Hunting Games on this page.
I would like to thank Peter Laidler who allowed me to reproduce an online post that he wrote that covers off nicely the FTR and subsequent upgrades. Peter was an armourer with the Australian Army during the late 60’s and served in NZ for some time at Ngaruawahia. Frank Adventure Game.
THE FAZAKERLEY FTR PROGRAMME OF 1948 TO 1951 I spoke at length to one of the now passed on but then very old managers at Fazakerly. Pmp Mp5 Games. This FTR programme started after the last production of new (No5) rifles had ceased. The Cold War was uppermost in minds, Maltby had closed and it was important to keep the large Fazakerley plant on stream. It was also pointed out that it was Fazakerley and not Enfield that had the expertise when it came to No4 rifles.
