British WWII Lee-Enfield .303 SMLE New Made Display Rifle
New Made Item: The famous Rifle, Short, Magazine, Lee-Enfield, or SMLE (sometimes spoken as "Smelly", rather than S, M, L, E) was introduced on 1 January 1904. After several modifications, the SMLE No.1 MkIII was introduced on 26 January 1907, along with a Pattern 1907 bayonet and featured a simplified rear sight arrangement and a fixed, rather than a bolt-head-mounted sliding, charger guide. This became the most widely known variant, and is what this replica rifle is based on.
The Lee-Enfield bolt-action, magazine-fed, repeating rifle was the main firearm used by the military forces of the British Empire/Commonwealth during the first half of the 20th century. It was the British Army's standard rifle from its official adoption in 1895 until 1957. The Lee-Enfield used the .303 British cartridge and in Australia and New Zealand the rifle became known simply as the "303". The military forces of Canada, India, South Africa, and many others also used the Lee-Enfield Rifle.
This replica non-firing rifle features all metal and wood construction with a short magazine and working bolt action. It has a bayonet lug but will not accept bayonet without alteration. This is a new made replica from the ground up, and does not use any original parts. None of the parts are compatible with an original.
