Merging Edit

Given the fact that weapons variants (that are close to each other) are usually together in one page on the BF wiki, shouldn't this be merged with the No 4? Ultimate94ninja talk · contribs 19:51, June 6, 2016 (UTC)

BF1's No 1 SMLE and 1942's No 4 differ about as much as the M16 variants; to my knowledge the No 4 really just has a stronger bolt and a heavier barrel. Compared to the case with something like the CAR-15 and the M4 Carbine, the SMLE and No 4 are still the same gun, so I'd support merging them into either one SMLE or Lee-Enfield article. -Krylov FA-37 Apprentice125(Talk)21:18, June 6, 2016 (UTC)

You are overlooking the huge production differences between the rifles. No.4 and MkIII/* have significantly different constructions methods which create significantly different rifles. There is a much larger gap between the Mk. III and No. 4 than between the M16A1 and M16A2. They are functionally identical from the perspective that they're rifles that share the same basic action, sure, but so are the M4 and M16 according to that argument. Talking about differences in doctrinal employment isn't really relevant to the discussion, either, because the M4 is a service rifle just the same as the M16 was.
