S&K scope mounts for Lee Enfields

Anybody have experience with S&K scope mounts for Lee Enfield rifles? I own two LE rifles: Ishapore 2A1 in 308 and a jungle carbine look-alike in 308. The jungle carbine looks like it's a rework of a 2A1. Anyways, I am wondering how well the S&K mounts work on these rifles.

TIA.

No experience with an S&K mount on a Lee Enfield, but I had one on a 1917 Enfield and it was pretty solid.

Awesome! I went ahead and ordered a S&K mount since the pricing was affordable. This is the 308 rifle I plan to mount the equipment to.

I have one on a no4mk1. Mounted a vintage T reticle weaver 4x in it. Works great. Plan was to make a wanna be half hearted sniper clone but I haven't had the heart to mount a cheek rest to the old stock. I'd definitely recommend it as probably the best way to mount a scope on an Enfield without bubba'ing it all up.

The mount arrived, and I installed it. The front ring didn't fit tight on the receiver nor did the wedge nut fit properly to the bridge over the action. Had to get a gunsmith to tighten the ring and trim the wedge nut until it fit correct and snug. Cost for that service was $20. The mount is on very solidly!

Even with the lowest scope ring height the scope sits quite high. I'll have to raise the comb by way of fabricating a piece of wood or something. Then I'll place it on the comb and strap a cheek rest over it.

Made for the No4 MkI Sniper version, but woks on any Enfield. Actually, works well on a whole bunch of rifles.

Thanks for the tip! Your idea will save me a lot time. I added the item to my firearms accessories to-buy list for February.

Grrrr! I'm still messing with the scopemount base for the Enfield. The first base I received from S&K broke after a few shots. I sent it back to S&K and received a new one at no additional charge. The lady mentioned on the phone that she thinks the material the base is fabricated from is inferior. It is inferior because the company had to fabricate bases out of lower-cost aluminum due to the tariffs and trade war increasing prices on the quality aluminum. *sigh*

Instead of the Nikon scope I found a 1-4x Burris scope to mount and will try that out. I am hoping the scopemount base will perform.
