I am looking to buy an Enfield. It is stamped R.O.F.M. No 4 MK 1 1941. The serial number starts with A. The receiver is stamped KK/ and then some Greek letters. Also in that area it is stamped with a N over 77. It is in fairly good condition with the magazine. I have not checked to see if the bolt and the receiver numbers match. Just looking for a rough estimate on what it should sell for.

Welcome from Phoenix Arizona. 
The ROFM indicates that is was manufactured at the Maltby plant.
That is about as far as anyone here can go with your supplied information without any photos attached. Your last question regarding a rough estimate on what it should sell for? Without photos to show us the actual  condition of the rifle , it would be very difficult to even attempt an answer. I will add this however. What you are willing to pay for it is the deciding factor on what it is worth.
I am sorry that your first time here did not have your answers come to fruition . Again, photos go a very long way in helping us to help you ...

Thank you for your response. I knew it would be difficult without pics, but all I had was some blurry ones shot in the sellers garage. I bought it more for the historical value than the dollar value. I was able to find some info about Maltby and the manufacture date, but not anything on the serial number and other markings. I will take some better pics and upload them as soon as I can.

Just as Shamu has indicated concerning price.
There was a thread a few years back discussing Greek markings. I found an excerpt from that thread.

Yes however the first ones the Greeks received were the mark 1’s later in the war they were equipped with Mark 4’s. The majority of these weapons were supplied to the Greeks from the British to fight the communists during the Civil War between 1944 and 1949 . Where after they were used as training rifle’s .

Oh my, that is a nice early Maltby. I see it retains the early cocking piece as well.

What is or where can I find the cocking piece? Still learning. I bought it for the historical value on a whim and am trying to catch up

The cocking piece can be found at the back of the bolt.

This cocking piece appears to be similar to that of the No.1 rifle. The No.4 rifle version of the button cocking piece was much chunkier with the portion for grasping button being much thicker.

I wonder if the No.4 striker and cocking piece have been switched out with those from an SMLE? Different threads on the strikers, but are interchangeable if switched as a pair.
