Tiki is this just for 100% original Maltby's? I am restoring mine which was sporterized and a completely shot out barrel. It does sport a newer 2 groove all original military barrel now.

Eric,

It's more for the serial numbers mate, so if your rifle still has the serial numbers on the receiver that will do just fine.

Hi Tiki, just found this thread and thought I'd jump in with my Maltby #4.
I got it from an estate. I bought it from the son-in-law who thought it was a sewer pipe
so he sold it to me really really cheap. It's a 2 groove barrel and it shoots good. Bill

ROF M No4MK1
Year - 1941
Serial # - E160xx
Stock - Beech
Hand guard - Grooved
Fore end - Normal
Might not be the original wood
Markings on right of butt stock look like this:
1 - 43
22
F R and a painted on very large A

I have several No.4's but before submitting info, could someone show me the difference between Beech and Birch in the stocks? I can identify walnut, but don't know the difference in the other two. Pictures would be great!
