In Excellent very attractive combat carried in 2 world wars condition, we have an Impossible to find, matching 1916 Enfield No1 MkIII∗ Short Model Lee Enfield Rifle. The bore is excellent and the stock cartouches are visible.
The SMLE is certainly Legendary; it was the most highly regarded and effective service rifle of the Great War with a butter smooth action, 10 shot magazine and short handy length. This was the Rifle that ruled the trenches when close enough for a firefight; the Mauser could not pour on fire as quickly. It was in service during WW2 and it is considered to be the classic British Battle Rifle of the early war era at places such as Dunkirk and the deserts of North Africa and even Burma. Finding an example of this rifle these days in any decent condition is a pretty big deal, they are all in collections or long lost and are rarely ever seen.
