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?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. - 21:18, June 6, 2016 (UTC)
They are as different as M16 and M4. Юра 23:57, June 6, 2016 (UTC)
- Not based off of what I've read so far. The No 4 functions identically to the No 1 minus it having a flip-aperture sight and it being front heavy because of the new barrel. There were no real design changes and it wasn't supposed fill out a role different from the No 1, whereas the M4 is intended for a close-quarters carbine role in the AR-15 family. I still say the difference is closer to the case with the M16 variants, the difference between the A1 to the A2 comes to mind here, but it's your call. - 03:59, June 7, 2016 (UTC)
