    Default .303 Enfield ShtLE No1 MKV

    Need a little help. I have looked on a lot of internet forums and cannot find an answer. I am looking to get a scope mount for my Enfield. I cannot find a scope mount for a No1 MKV. I have found mounts for a No1 MKIII or a No4 MKV. My question is, can I purchase a mount for a No1 MKIII and will it work? Do I need to match the Model # or the MK #? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Check out www.sporterizing.com. Most of the sites that deal with the Enfield (and other military rifles) consider it an outrage to modify or alter a classic firearm in any way, but on that site you will find people on a sub-forum who will help you out.

    I've got a 1969 book by Williams Gunsight Company on converting military rifles, including the MKV. It recommends the Williams SM-71 base plus rings for mounting scopes. I don't know if that base or compatible rings are still available from Williams, but it's worth a check. If not, it still gives you a starting place for searching the used market if you don't find something contemporary.
