It is a 1942 No4 Mk1 made in the US by Savage for the lend lease program. It is marked U.S. property on the left side. Serial number on the bolt and receiver match. I don't know if its the original barrel just cut down or a replacement, but the barrel hardware is all missing and new sights added. It is also drilled and tapped for a scope mount on top as well as looks to be drilled and tap for a side scope mount also. The sporter stock is pretty well done and actually has some nice figure in the forend and a nice schnabel tip. I am steaming the dents out of the stock right now. I plan to reblue it and modify the stock just a bit to fit my shooting hand a bit better and replace the scope and rings. Should be a nice little rifle to put in the deer hunting rotation. I will post my progress here. On a side note, I know almost nothing about these and have not started researching yet, how hard and expensive would it be to put the rear sights back on this. I don't see anything obviously cut where they took the rear sights off. No4 Mk1 had peep sights right?
