The British seriously considered replacing all their bolt actions with the Rifle No. 5, but it had some problems, including the so-called "wandering zero" (which they thought existed) and the recoil. The result was that they kept the Rifle No. 4 in service, upgrading the trigger mechanism, until the adoption of the FAL.
