https://thedevizesgunsmith.co.uk/notice-board/" rel="nofollow - Excellent original barrel

.303 Lee Enfield No1Mk5 Troop Trials Rifle, Circa 1924. Rare and wonderfully original example of the first rifle trialled to replace the No1Mk3 SMLE in the early years following WW1. This example is all matching (original) numbers and has all the correct trials pattern (and Enfield inspectors marked) components throughout even down to the foresight blade and (often missing/wrong) magazine cut-off with no sighting hole. Excellent original barrel (numbered and dated) gauging at .303” all making this a very desirable example indeed that would make an excellent collection piece as well as a fine shooter.
£2,795.00

sure glad i got mine when i did and on this side of the pond , that would be a hard pill to swallow to be sure , i might be tempted by an all original early mkVI but even then id be puckered to be sure ,

I am looking for one to restore. Knowing me, I will probably find something stripped with a cut barrel drilled and tapped with sporter wood. I do have a mag cut off plate without the jig hole, so I do have my first part for the build.

These are simply not moving around the open market too much, so me figures that they are mostly in collections already.

Look to your front, mark your target when it comes!
