I am no longer in possession of the 1939 Enfield serial no-B3792 but I have been busy collecting,
I now have in my collection-
1938 Enfield mk1 double dovetail,serial no. A3868 with early lower reciever.
1938 Enfield mk1 double dovetail,serial no. A4193 with early lower reciever, both these guns are to original early spec.
1942 Enfield mk1 originally serial no. V7384, this number has been scratched out and now has 6081 stamped above it, unsure of what this means. This gun has a mk2 butt and bipod.
Also have a mk1 tripod with AA legs and original butt handle clips, made by A.G.E. and dated 1941, serial number A.521

That's one of the very last Inglis Mk1 guns. No more than 1000 made after that.

My Bren is 1941 MK 1 with the d logo all matching serial numbers K.6411, all early parts including the correct tripped which I was thinking of selling, when I looked up the date of manufacture its seems to be November or December 1940 dated Bren. I do know that year dated parts were made before the the actual date stamped on equipment. Have I got this wrong or is the date of manufacture correct.

K6411 would be mid 1941, 1940 ended with numbers in the low F serials.

Thanks for the clarification, must have miss read the serial number date chart wrong. Would this serial number have a precise month.

Just checked up my source of Bren serial numbers for Enfield from the Skennerton publication, K1- K9999 1940- 41. 1941 starts with L . Looking at the table it seems that the serial number could be early as October 1940. I suspect a bit later like November or December. Skenneton book must be wrong then.
