British P-1895 Long Lee Enfield Cutaway Skeletal Display Rifle
Original Item. Only One Available. Please see Ian Skennwerton's wonderful book "THE LEE ENFIELD" (Available from IMA separately), Pages 527 to 529 for full information about these extremely rare "Training Devices". Here we have a first year production P-1895 three-digit serial number rifle as a Skeleton Rifle. Manufactured in 1895 this is legally classified as an "antique" by the BATF.
Beautifully executed by Victorian Craftsmen this is a mega rare example that has all the correct features of the earliest long Lee Enfield P-1895 magazine Rifle production. These include a brass butt plate with steel trap door and the cutaway earliest form of ten shot magazine.
The barrel shortened, drilled and welded to the receiver that is unable to chamber a cartridge, as these were intended as Training Devises Only, making this an amazingly rare item to appear on the open collector’s market.

IMA considers all of our antique guns as non-firing, inoperable and/or inert. Title 18, U.S. Code, Section 921(a)(16) defines antique firearms as all guns made prior to 1899. This law exempts antique firearms from any form of gun control or special engineering because they are not legally considered firearms. No FFL, C&R or any license is required to posses, transport, sell or trade Antique guns. All rifles and muskets sold by IMA that were manufactured prior to 1898 are considered Antiques by the US BATF (United States Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco & Firearms). Therefore, all of IMA's Antique guns may be shipped to all US States and most nations around the world. These antique guns are not sold in live condition. They are sold as collector’s items or as wall hangers. Any attempt at restoring an antique gun to be operational is strongly discouraged and is done so at the risk of the customer. By purchasing an antique gun from IMA you thereby release IMA, its employees and corporate officers from any and all liability associated with use of our Antique guns.
