Hmmm... nice gun you have there.
two questions:

a) What are your thoughts on the Lee Enfield No. 4 as a marksman's rifle?
b) How does the M4 fair as a blunt weapon in CQC?

Hmmm.  Enfield No 4 is kind of dated, and there are a few modern semi-auto rifles chambered in .308 with she same, or better accuracy (SCAR 17, M14, etc.)
But it did it's job well for the times, and you could do a lot worse!

As far as CQC, The M4 sucks as a blunt force weapon. Mostly polymer and light weight, the stock breaks if you hit someone hard enough to do any damage. 
The bayonet works, but nobody uses those. That's why most of us carry ka-bar if we think there's gonna be a chance of CQC.

To be honest,I prefer the AK4 in many ways over the M4 (better stopping power, and very good for whacking), but the .556 clobbers the 7.62x39 in range and accuracy, and it's all a distance game now.

Well, make do with what you got. I'd like a better rifle, but certain laws where I live don't allow me. and because I'm a reservist, I don't have access to the fancy standard issue C7s here. So I'm stuck with my two Lee Enfields and  a 1912-pattern Winchester.
  • Replica firearms (i.e.: "any device that is designed or intended to exactly resemble, or to resemble with near precision, a firearm, and that itself is not a firearm, but does not include any such device that is designed or intended to exactly resemble, or to resemble with near precision, an antique firearm")
  • Suppressors (i.e.: "a device or contrivance designed or intended to muffle or stop the sound or report of a firearm")
  • Handgun barrels that are 105 millimetres (4.1 in) and under (excluding barrels of pistols used in international sporting competitions governed by the rules of the International Shooting Union)
  • Electrical or mechanical devices designed or adapted to render the trigger mechanism of a semi-automatic firearm to discharge in a fully automatic fashion
  • "Any rifle, shotgun or carbine stock of the type known as the “bull-pup” design, being a stock that, when combined with a firearm, reduces the overall length of the firearm such that a substantial part of the reloading action or the magazine-well is located behind the trigger of the firearm when it is held in the normal firing position.(i.e.: only removable stocks are prohibited by this regulation, fixed-stock firearms such as the FN P90 and IWI Tavor are excluded)
This is why Canadian politics suck. Also, magazine capacity is limited to 5 rounds for semi-auto rifles. Any rifles with the ability to go full auto are prohibited, as well as any semi that was once full auto. The AR-15 and all associated rifles are in the restricted list, but I have to wait another 4 years before I'm eligible for that level of license. 


Also, I love Are we There yet. best. song. ever.

Personally, I'd go with an M14 rifle if I was given the option. Accurate, reliable, and absolutely deadly.

M14 is a good rifel. But believe me, after about 4 hours of drills or field work, your arms, back, and shoulders will be thanking you for picking up an M4!
