    Hi- my Dad gave me an Enfield No. 1 Mk III with a broken butt stock. Does anyone know if 'furniture' from an Enfield No. 4 Mk I would fit?

    Hey sandanbob,
    from what I understand, the No. 4 stock should fit but you'll probably have to use the old butt stock bolt since the No. 4 design was changed slightly for mass production. The No. 1 Mk III requires the forestock to be removed before the butt stock bolt is undone (otherwise you risk cracking the forestock). The No. 4 does not.

    There's a list of changes between the two rifles here: http://www.marstar.ca/RifleNo4.htm

    According to them, apart from a few changes everything else is interchangable.

    Good luck. When you're done, you'll have a fantastic rifle. :)

    Be warned that Enfield buttstocks came in different lengths. European troops usually got medium or long stocks while small stature troops from the far east got short stocks.

    The one I am looking at is in the latest Century Arms catalog, page 22, if that helps. I don't see any dimensions on it.
