1918 Dated No.1 MK3 Lithgow Enfield

in .303


This is a very nice Enfield rifle made by Lithgow in Australia. It was arsenal refurbished in 1942 with a new barrel and stock. It doesn't appear to have been issued after refurbishing. The stamps behind the trigger guard appear to be the refurbish marks with SLAZ (Slazenger Annex which supplied wood furniture from 1941) and 42 (1942). The new barrel was force matched and nitro proofed. The bore is excellent to mint condition. The large HV on the barrel refers to it being sighted for high velocity ammo but the SC I'm not sure about its meaning. The barrel and receiver have a lot of inspection stamps. I have tried to include them all in the photos. Not sure what the PĚD stamp on the guard or the CĚP on the sight leaf mean. The sling appears to be original but I couldn't find a date on it. Overall it's in excellent condition for the age. It is import marked. The pictures will tell you more.

Maybe some of the collectors out there can fill me in on the markings in question.

Should be a great shooter with the proper ammo. The standard .303 military surplus ammo and most new manufactured ammo you find on the market will work fine. I wouldn't try any hot high pressure loads in it. The pictures will tell you more.

This gun must be shipped to a FFL or C&R holder.

This is a consignment gun so I can not accept trade or layaway offers.
