View Full Version : Savage Enfield date from serial number

December 24, 2006, 02:21 AM
I recently bought a U.S. Savage Enfield No 4 MK 1, and cannot find a date on it ANYWHERE. Based on Google search results of responses to other peoples questions of a date based on thier serial numbers, I would estimate mine at mid to late 1943. I dont know where others are getting the info to be able to date them based on serial number, and would like to verify my estimate, or get the correct date if Im wrong.I'd also like to know if these were ever re-arsenaled by us or the British, and if so, find out if mine was and when if possble. My serial number is 84C62**. Thanks for an help in advance.

IIRC that would be 1944. The C is for Chicopee Falls Mass.

Check out Parallaxbills curio & relic & military arms forum. One of the sticky's at the top of the page, is Savage serial no.'s.... Under Lee Enfield rifles
