Default Savage Mark4*

I have been wanting a mark4 for awhile and of course wanted a US marked savage. I recently acquired one with a great 2 groove bore and bayonet. I believe it is a post war Canadian Refurb that still has som cosmoline I have to clean out. I love the story of these rifles being made in the US for England and ending back up in North America. The receiver is a 1942 marked Savage but not 100% sure if the serial number is original or a re Arsenal http://imgur.com/a/UCJLA41

Welcome. and glad you are posting a nice Savage .303 Mk4.
I have one and love the design with American made quality.
Your pics, although good are a jumble to me.
Savage marked most major parts with an S and you should show any LB markings clearly in some sort of order.

Thanks for the pics. That is a nice looking Enfield. I have always wanted a Savage No.4 and was lucky enough to find one on the forum. I can only hope mine looks half as good as yours.

Have fun with it !

These are all the markings it has i donít think itís a rebuilt rifle no serial number on the bolt or magazine, do you suggest an order of photos most parts seem unmarked

Nice looking rifle! Savage marked virtually every part with an block S or a boxed S. The from what I can see the stock, trigger guard, magazine, and possibly the rear sight, safety and the bolt are not Savage. The lower sling loop is Savage.

The serial number seems off. It's much larger font than normal and I've never seen one that started with just C. They normally have one or two numbers before the letter. I have an original condition Savage also from 1942. The serial number is and is 32C9318 and is much smaller.

Edit: Here's a listing of Savage serial numbers:

0C1 - 1941 MKI lowest # 1941 date
0C2804 - 1941 MKI highest # 1941 date

0C3870 - 1942 MKI lowest # 1942 date
13C2752 - 1942 MKI highest MKI # 1942 date

13C2845 - 1942 MKI* lowest MKI* # 1942 date
36C1916 - 1942 MKI* highest MKI* # 1942 date

38C2632 - 1943 lowest MKI* # 1943 date
60C7797 - 1943 highest MKI* # 1943 date

51C7693 - no date lowest MKI* # with no date
0C63110 - no date highest MKI* # with no date

Thank you for the information do you know any books that have more information to read about? Itís a shame itís not an original savage but the condition pointed to refurb before I got it. I donít have any knowledge on the serial numbers so thank you, I guess it is possible some one some where re serialised it at some point. I have seen plenty of rough Greek refurbs but what ever country that worked on this spent some time on it.

Many experts on the Gunboards Forum in the Enfield section. I have a 03C from South Africa which makes it a "no asterisk".

Thanks Farmer Ted for the additional info on serials.
OP's rifle certainly has more markings than I'm aware of from the LB rebuild.
Not my area of study at all. So in addition to the Gunboards link suggested above, the milsurps.com forum https://www.milsurps.com/forumdisplay.php?f=111 or most likely here https://www.milsurps.com/forumdisplay.php?f=111 has experts and authors as well to explain this nice rifle.
Looking forward to our education!

Any idea when 76C76xx would have been made. No date, what looks like a 3 or a poorly struck B underneath the serial#. Matching bolt. All S marked parts, no import marks.
