The original series...to me John Joseph Patrick Ryan is the only REAL Steve McGarrett!
Just kidding, Laufer!
Are we talking No 1 vs No 4? Or variations on the no 4? I am new to the No 1 Mk III* and have had a couple of No 4 Mk Is. I think the bolt operation is smoother on my No 1 but I prefer the sight picture on my No 4s.

I like the flush muzzle of the No1 Mk III It protects the crown very nicely. I like the ladder sights on my No4 Mk I much better and the No 4 seems to have a better balance. I like them both just the same.
I really like the No5 quite a bit. Its one of my top five favorite rifles in my collection. But then again so is my no1 mk3* so i guess its a toss up between those two. The No4 is a decent rifle but Ive had enough problems with the two that I've got that im kinda soured when it comes to them. No.4s are good, its just the two i got were kinda lemons so unless there is something really nice about a No.4 i dont see myself buying another any time soon.
My Savage No.4 got better after i cleaned the crown up with some lapping compound and a solid brass round headed bolt.
I love the Sights on a No.1 Mk3 and the weight feels really good in the hands. The No.5 I love how handy and how good it feels when pulled up to the shoulder.
There are some serious issues here that need to be made resolved....
I really wish Memphis had a large gun show like you can find in Texas. My one dream is to attend one of those, if not in Tulsa, the Holy Grail (Mecca).

As for series, "Combat" (with Vic Morrow), "12 O'clock High" and the "Rat Patrol" were really good.
It really surprised me that I did not lose interest in LEs after receiving my first Garand in early August.
The #5s might be my favorite, but knowing that the #4/1 represents the main WW2 British/Commonwealth battle rifle makes it hard to decide.
It's so confusing! :[
The No.4 is my favourite because the aperture-peep sight makes it far easier to shoot for people who wear glasses or have chronologically gifted eyesight.
The No.4 is also easier to adjust the bedding on and get the No.4 shooting properly. Many of the Enfield rifles suffer from dried out stocks from lack of re-oiling with raw linseed oil and the bedding needs to be worked on in the rear draws area.
You can't just tighten the forward trigger guard screw if the bushing-collar is too long if you have wood shrinkage.
The rear of the fore stock must be a tight fit in the draws area.
