    No 4 Mk 1* made by Savage Stevens Firearms in 1942.

    They made approx 1.2 million rifles under contract for the British Government - production ended in June 1944.

    Should be marked with the serial number on the receiver side wall and the back of the bolt handle-as a US made Savage Stevens example it should also be marked 'US Property' on the left hand receiver side wall as supplied to Britain as Lend Lease equipment paid for by the US-the sporterisation may have involved 'scrubbing' (polishing/grinding) off the receiver of these marks.-what rear sights does it have-can't tell from the photos.
