Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Enfield No. 2 MK I mark question

#1 Post by Kevinofborg » Thu Jul 20, 2017 12:35 pm

I saw a Enfield No. 2 MK I with B.M.C.I. stamped on the cylinder.

Anyone know what that stands for?

Commonly believed to be the "steel batch number", and is not an acronym of any sort. Most you see are 3-letter variants (mine is stamped SPB), but some 4-letter markings are out there.

Normally, on the actual steel batch number cylinder marks there shouldn't be a period after each letter like you denoted above. It occurs to me that perhaps you already know about the steel batch number and are asking about a marking that is in addition to the steel batch number? Please clarify.

Is that the only marking on the cylinder? It doesn't look like a typical steel batch number but absent another 3-letter code elsewhere on the cylinder I really don't know what to make of it. Never seen acronyms on a No. 2 Enfield before.
