        The "catch" is in the wording "shootable bore" Really means it's F*&^%D but you could hit a pig at 20yds. Trust me I have had plenty bad UG experience.

      Described as "shootable" bore (suggesting some reasonable amount of wear), yet the stock looks a bit well, shiny


      Grasping at straws here, maybe its had a refurb job on the furniture? Doesn't seem to match does it. For a MkII seems a bit cheap even with that bore description.



      Of course I could easily being talking total crap lol

        Yeah could be right, lol

        guess its hard to talk up "pig at 20 yards" as a sales pitch :P


        Makes the stock mismatch even more suspect to my mind

          The No4 Mk 1 & 2s are popular with Service Rifles shooters, so I'm guessing that it's had a good few thousand rounds through it (possibly a fair bit of it being the Pakistani corrosive cordite stuff, which was around in decent quantities and considered popular cheap club ammo; some of the clubs I shoot with still use it) and it's now ready for a re-barrel? Usually the description "good pig gun" suggests that firearm that will hold it's own against a charging pig at 15m in the scrub and is often applied to old 30-30 levers and cut-down old "bubba'd" SMLEs, but not usually pristine-looking Mk 2s...

        It does look nice, definitely a refurb, the metal work looks too good for a 40yr old rifle.
        That would be a good rifle for me to buy, always wanted a No4.

          Yeah, saw a few barrels for sale on one of the sites (firearmsales.com, usedguns). Don't know what gunsmiths charge these days to change out a barrel and headspace the bolt however I'm guessing that for under a grand all up you'd have a very nice looking mk2 with an excellent new barrel that would shoot like a new rifle.
      Working...
