Navy Arms has imported a small group of original World War II dated Enfield #4 Mark 1 rifles in .303 British that were provided to French resistance fighters and commandos and helped liberate Europe from Nazi occupation. These guns were dropped by parachute by the thousands into France by the Allies in large metal pods. These guns were purchased directly from the French Government who had them stored in deep underground caves in Southern France since 1946.
Each rifle comes with the original World War II issued sling still on the rifles! (This is how they were stored, having never taken them off). Has the #4 Mk II style stamped rear sight as shown, bores are excellent with little to no wear and no pitting, bright and shiny! Wood is original walnut, one hand guard has a hairline crack as shown, with original finish and inspection marks/cartouches intact, zinc buttplates. Bolts are not serial numbered to the guns.

This is an extremely rare consecutive factory serial numbered pair of guns. Both M47/C BSA Shirley manufactured as well as a factory “PP” mark on the wrist. The first gun has factory serial number 36960, the second is factory serial number 36961. Like all guns in this lot, each gun also has a storage number with a “PP” Prefix on the receivers, which was put on by the French Government at the end of the war as a unique reference number for each gun. It is extremely rare to encounter a consecutively numbered pair of guns that are documented to have served in conflict.

The French government had stored these guns without the magazines over 75 years ago deep inside underground caves, and in that time has misplaced them, so each rifle comes with a Navy Arms Parker-Hale reproduction magazine made in the identical style as the originals.

These are truly exceptional examples of World War II Enfield #4 Mk 1 rifles. There is a very limited supply, do not miss out on adding this unique example to your collection.

OWS is listing each gun individually with detailed photographs of the actual gun for each listing so the photos you see on this listing will be the actual firearm you receive if you order this gun.

This listing and price is for the purchase of both of these rifles.

These guns are curios and relics, we will ship to C&R licenses.
