SOLD SOLD (13/06) *British 1901 Enfield L.E.1 (Mark 1) .303 Calibre Rifle With Post Boer War South African WD Marks, Breech Cover, Magazine Cut Off, Long Range Volley Sights & Flip Up Rear Aperture Sight**UK/EU DEACTIVATION CERTIFICATED**Sn 18457 - 18457
The Lee-Enfield .303 MK 1 was introduced into the British Army in 1895 and in Canada the year following. It replaced the Lee-Metford, which had been the standard issue firearm since 1889. The latter was a magazine-fed repeating rifle, but it fired cartridges using black powder which emitted smoke when fired that gave away the rifleman's position. In 1891, the British first produced cordite a propellant that burned cleanly without emitting smoke. It also generated more heat, however, which wore out the Lee-Metford's rifling system of seven shallow grooves. A new rifling system was developed at the Royal Small Arms Factory, Enfield, consisting of five deep grooves that could withstand the intense heat generated by the cordite. The result was the .303 Lee-Enfield MK 1 rifle, in all respects identical to the Lee-Metford except for the rifling. The new rifle saw service in the Boer wars and beyond. This is an excellent .303 calibre Lee Enfield L.E.1 bolt action rifle. It is crisply stamped on the right side of the strap ‘Enfield 1901(date) Crown VR (Victoria Regina) L.E.1 (Lee Enfield MK 1 designation).
