Enfield #1 MkIII* Rifle

Lithgow dated 1941

in .303

 

 

This is a very nice rifle with all matching numbers including the forend. The wood on this one is in good condition with the usual dents and dings. There is one deep ding on the right side shown in the pictures and it has an arsenal repair in the forend as well. It is marked FTR (factory through repair) which was done in 1952 at the Maltby Arsenal according to the markings. All of the parts are correct for a Lithgow rifle. 

There is about 95% blue left on the metal with the protected barrel having about 99% left. The bore is a little rough but has good strong rifling and might clean up better, about a 7/10. The bolt, nosecap and rear sight numbers all match the receiver. It is import marked lightly on the receiver.

Overall a very nice collectable rifle that would be a good shooter and a great addition to any collection.

The pictures will tell you more.

 

FFL or C&R required.
