Two very interesting rifles. The No.1 Mk IV was a conversion of the Long lee to No.1 Mk III configuration and the No.1 Mk VI was a new rifle from which the No.4 Mk I was developed.

since there were only six pattern "A" mkVIs and just over 1000 pattern "B" mkVIs these are very rare , id love to have one but alas im fearing it will escape me like the 300 or so HAKs have , these trials rifles did indeed result in the no4 and the early ones 2500+ are also rare ,
i do have a decent mkV in my cabinet it was the trials just prior to the swift move to the no4 and started the ball rolling but with 20k made a bit more attainable ,


i take it there was a typo ? thus the mkIV referance ? ill leave that alone

They are just a cool rifle. I was just curious. I'm pleased to see a few in circulation, so to speak. Have you shot them? Does the heavier barrel add to the accuracy?

A-Square10: I too have a No 1, MkV in dandy shape. I have shot it with cast bullets and it is exceedingly accurate. ~Andy
