By configuration and markings You can get an approximate year range by observing the Model and Type of Enfield. The No.1 Mk III was made from around 1907 to 1944, while the No. 4 Mk1 was made from 1939 to 1956. Further narrowing can be done by observing which of the manufacturers made the rifle. There are numerous collector books and magazines relating to this subject.
