xHi,
New to Lee Enfields with no real experience about them.
Picked up a nice (what I think) Savage built No4 Mk1*.
Bolt, reciever, front wood match serial number.
All the parts that have a mark have the square S or square S in a square.
My question is what is the little pin hole with possibly a small pin in the reciever wristband under the serial number?
There are no import or FTR marks on this rifle .
Other than this oddity it is extremely clean.
I have not seen this on any other No4 Mk1*.
Not that I've seen alot but not even any online.
Your thoughts are appreciated

I think its a stamp of some sort. I've looked at many pictures of similar rifles on Google, and some have a similar making but with the fire bomb stamping.
Could be wrong, all I have are the Enfield No1, MKIII's in my collection.
Best of luck in finding out what it is.

(Picture is not mine, but found on this site from over 10 years ago, as a fellow collector was looking for information on his.)

You sure that is an "S" and not a 5? Based on Saiga74's photo and your description it might well be a 5
