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). The rifle is number 3390 and the barrel shank has BSA piled arms logo together with Post Boer war South African WD marks and ‘7.14’ most likely July 1914 WW1 era date. The wood has an Enfield roundel and 11 1903 date (November 1903) all indicating re-issue to South African forces post Boer war after British service. It has a stepped blade fore sight, flip up rear peep sight, long range volley sights, ladder sight, Breech cover, bayonet bar, sling swivels & magazine cut off (fixed in place during deactivation process). The wood work is all original and in excellent condition with just the bumps and bruises to be expected. The stock has a brass butt plate with trap. The butt plate tang has struck out number ‘240’ and number ‘3390’. Deactivated to UK / EU specification in 2021 the weapon’s bolt & trigger move and the magazine can be removed. The price includes UK delivery and UK / EU deactivation certificate. Sn 18457
