B.S.A. Lee Enfield #1 MkIII

 Dated 1939 Arsenal Rebuilt in 1956

in .303

 

 

This is a fully rebuilt rifle done at the B.S.A. factory. It has new beech wood with the date 1956 stamped behind the trigger guard. The new barrel was 'nitro proofed' and has the 'HV' stamp for use with the Mark VII spitzer high velocity ammunition. The rear sight has been updated for the new ammo. The late style bolt is not matched to the gun which would not be unusual for a refurbished gun. The bolt face is like new and the bore is excellent. It probably was never fired after it left the arsenal. Besides being 'factory fresh' this rifle still retains the original magazine cutoff plate which in itself is a rare feature to find now. This rifle is the closest thing to a brand new SMLE #1 MkIII you will probably ever find.

Overall a very nice, clean rifle that would be a good shooter and an excellent addition to any collection.

I have a very nice M1907 bayonet and scabbard which would go nice with this rifle. Click here
