The Fulton's No4 shoots well; but I don't know if it's a good as when it as modified. That could have been 40 years ago! it's probably a better shot than I am though.
I have only recently acquired my second No4 mk1 and have not shot it enough for a full evaluation. However it seem's as good as the Fulton's with factory PPU ammo. But this standard rifle is in amazingly good condition; having been properly stored for 70 years. 
It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice!

I suspect my Fulton No.4 has lost much of its preload on the barrel, it was done in 1963; 55 years ago.   It had not been fired until I got it from my Dad in the mid ‘90s. I don’t remember if the trigger guard screw was tight when I got it. I thought about shimming the bearing up.
