Default Lee Enfield Thread

Can't believe we didn't have one before...
L.E.'s have a special place in my Heart & Safe. 1st C&R I ever bought with C&R in mind. I've had 7 or 8 & now I'm back up 2 for a total of 4. 1890's technology, cock on close bolt, 10 round detachable magazine, lots of wood for character, powerful .303 round, Millions made, still lots of them available. What's not to like?

My current stash:
1917 Lithgow SHT LE (SMLE) 1st LE


1942 No 4 MK1 Savage made & 1944 SHT LE (SMLE) Lithgow


Post your Lee Enfields!

Current project. Bubba'd No4 Mk II/III. Getting ready to stain a new beechwood stock.


Couple others I've bought & traded.

Not the prettiest gun but it does shoot - well/very well

Wow those are really fine weapons. And Bruce your rifle was refurbished to be just as beautiful as any of the others. I'll try to take some pictures of my two and post those up tomorrow. I really liked the ones I saw on this thread. Fellas you all own some great guns.

Picked up a couple to add to the pile.
Made an offer on the lot. Not really sure what I got, but the price was right. Only one has all matching #.
In no particular order,
BSA 1915, BSA 19116, Lithgow 1917, GRI 1948, GRI 1949

Sadly has been a wall hanger only so far. The bore is immaculate, so I'm curious to see how it shoots (whenever I get around to it). Bought it from a pawn shop for $180 OTD a half a year ago. Couldn't resist!

Beautiful guys!

Is it just the camera angle or does the LOP on several of these look longer than others? Did these stocks come in different sizes?

Some angle issues, but some of the various model Enfields did have 2 different length buttstocks.

Here is the finished product:



Got the original core rifle (1945 Lithgow w/all matching numbers) from a fellow Calgunner. The rifle was a shooter grade and nothing special. I had to reblue a majority of it since most of the bluing worn off. It did have a very, very nice bore, though.

Rifle: $250
New Stock: $100
Restoration accessories: $50

Total $400 plus 4.5 weeks worth of work.

Where did you get the stock?
Cold blue or hot?

How do the draws look on the new stock? Any proof stamps like SLAZ?

$69.95 at Big 5 about 1997, one of a dozen ordered by a store in Fresno just so I could find one with WWI date and early features. Replacement (Indian) wood; original was not salvageable.

Bluing looks good. I've used Brownells OxphoBlue & liked it.

Just picked this one up on gunbroker a week ago, guy gave me a great deal. $700 for an unissued Fazakerley RAF contract gun. FYI for those looking for a brand new enfield, they are commonly referred to as "Irish" contract but they are not. The actual Irish contracts at PF guns, and where heavily used. The UF RAF contract stuff that came into the USA in the early nineties can be found in literally unfired condition.

The angled cuts that match the lugs on the btm of the receiver and when the action screws are tightened they draw the receiver and fore-stock tight. When the stock is not tight they get beat and you loose accuracy.

Ooh boy, the new stock was really really tight, and really sturdy.

Many if not the majority have the draws re-worked with brass plates fitted to the draws on some wood new and older wood when beaten soft. Almost a lost art and the plates and screws have become scarce. I know of only one person in the USA doing the work today and only when the bits show up from the UK. Coach wood like in the photo I posted is dry and can split so people treat the draws with epoxy or wacky glue. More than likely I won't ever shoot it or if I do I will hunt up a maple or birch stock set.

The UF RAF contract stuff that came into the USA in the early nineties can be found in literally unfired condition.

$700 sounds great! Nice find!

Beautiful weapons guys. Anyone hear of a 1941 supreme by golden state arms? I picked one up a while back for 50$. I didn't even know it was an enfield til I did some research. I dont have a pic its definitely not as pretty as these but its all sporterized, kinda looks like a Jungle Carbine. I'm gonna shoot it for first time next week. I have no idea when it was fired last, probably a long time. Being you guys are the experts on these is there anything I need to check for safety wise before I test fire. Thanks

I got the rifle on top from another fellow Calgunner. The No. 4 is pretty much what inspired me to restore the SMLE, double time.

Well, there you go, my Enfies.
