Yes, sounds correct. Under the serial (under the M47C) should be "TR".

Buttstock should have "S51" on the toe behind the grip. Buttstock should have a raised cheek piece held on by two screws. Rear sight should have the battle sight ring milled off.

It's a mark put on by Holland & Holland once they custom fit new stocks to the No4(T) rifles they converted. No idea what it means, other than that most H&H snipers with original buttstocks will have this mark.

As I understand it, during WW2 each manufacturer was given a code to try and stop the Germans finding a rifle with H&H on it looking up a street directory and then bombing the H&H factory.
The code consisted of the area of the country (S=south, M=midlands, N=north) followed by an assigned number.
So BSA was M (midlands) 47 (BSA), and C was factory 3 Shirley.

H&H's makers mark, assigned by the MOD. There were hundreds of codes.

They're not often seen with that well-used, but cared for and original finish look. Usually they are either refinished, beat to heck or hardly used. I like it. The scope and mount have been painted post-war, but that's not surprising. Someone may have packed that through NW Europe in 44-45.

Theres a guy in South Carolina goes by the name of Brian Dick, sells a lot of British #4 (t) extras and the other stuff. Just sold a scope can to him a couple of months ago. He might have what your looking for.
