1948-1950, British Factory Sectioned Cut-Away Lee Enfield No4 .303 Calibre, SKN2428 Armourer’s Instructional Rifle Action, Shoulder Stock & Part Barrel. D 1497 - D 1497
This is a now scarce Lee Enfield .303 No4 "SKN" Armourers Instructional Action. Approximately 2500 official SKN No4 actions were manufactured between 1948 & 1950 utilising components from service rifles. Quite a number of skeleton actions were assembled by the Gun trade and by REME workshops, but these lack the official SKN number on the left hand wall of the action body. The contract was originally given to ROF Enfield, but following legal action involving the alleged un-licensed Government manufacture of the L2 Sterling SMG, manufacture was given instead to Sterling Engineering as part of the legal settlement. Sterling then sub-contracted the work to List Engineering of Dagenham, which produced SKN's and returned them to ROF Enfield for inspection and service acceptance. This example is stamped with the correct SKN designation (see page 230 of the Lee Enfield Story By Skennerton) ‘SKN 2428’. The stock has an alloy butt plate with trap. The piece measures 27 ¾” overall length. This SKN is in excellent overall condition. The bolt action works as it should and it cocks and dry fires. As a sectioned instructional piece not capable of discharging, no licence is required to own this item in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display. Price includes UK delivery. D 1497
