Lee-Enfield No.4 MKI T

Well restoration is underway on the No.4. Couple concerning questions arose during the cosmoline removal and blue removal. On the reciver it says No.4 MKI T im obviouly confused as the T signifys it as a Sniper but I dont see any holse for the mounting of the scope. So is it possible to have been rushed out to the front before being fitted with a scope? It also has marking M47C which if memory serves means its a BSA?

Update, the Enfield is a true test of patience. Cosmoline, Grease whatever the brits called it is caked up everywhere. Even siaked in the wood which is a act in its own right.

Me and my friend used a cleaning agent called Awesome. It works very well and disent harm the firearm as far as we have seen. Its coming along very well. Will update more as we go along. I got Enfield fever I want more!!!! But my wallet says " Please you better slow down".....

My colley side of the family are from England, I am related to Victoria Cross Recipent Harold John Colley. Im not for sure how I am related exactly though. But my gandma says that some of our family are still in wales. But anyways Enfields tickle my fancy more than any gun I own.
