Markings: The rifle is still wrapped in its original paper & cosmoline “mummy wrap”. We have only cut paper to view the serial number (we need to be legal). The paper at the front of the barrel was opened so that the importer could mark the front of the barrel. The import mark reads “C.A.I. ST. ALB. VT. / .303 UK”. The left side of the receiver reads “NO4 Mk2 / UF. 55 A16899”. The “UF is a Royal Ordnance Factory (ROF) Fazakerley designation code. The “55” is for 1955, the year of manufacture. The tag on the rifle is marked “SERIAL No. A16899 / WF 55” on both sides. The “WF” is a typo. It should read “UF”.

Our Assessment: This Enfield No.4 Mk2 is in its original long term storage paper & cosmoline “mummy wrap”. It was made at the Royal Ordnance Factory (ROF) Fazakerley in 1955 and was placed into storage shortly thereafter. It has been kept in this condition by the owner for collector value. Many collectors prefer that these rifles be left in their long term storage paper & cosmoline “mummy wrap” as it adds value to the rifle. From its appearance, we believe the rifle to be in unissued condition. This unissued Enfield should be in pristine condition once unwrapped and cleaned…If you choose to do that.
CA Legal or CA Private Party Transferable: This rifle is curio and relic eligible and can be transferred/sold in California.
