    So... because I was rushing things like an idiot trying to remove a stripped screw from the top of a LEC, I managed to drill the hole way deeper then i needed to... didn't go completely trough the barrel, but it's deeper then is probably ideal. Is there a good way to fix this? Could the hole be...

    I have a 1907 bsa mk1* that I'm needing an original shoulder stock for. Can anyone help?

    I just picked up this Enfield as a cheap gun to have fun with and was wondering if anyone could help me identify exactly what type it is. I don't know anything about where this gun has been or what has been removed from it other than the stock. It is chambered in .308 and has an India stamp, all...

    I just picked up this piece for cheap, I got it because I've never seen one look like this. That being said I've tried doing research but can find nothing. I'm mainly concerned about the front end barrel and furniture.

    Hi, I have a 1944 sportized Lee Enfield no4 mk1. The outside of the barrel has a lot of machining marks that appear to be from a lathe. I have read that during the war machining that did not effect the fire of the rifle were not inspected as well as years before. So my question is, has anyone...

    Greetings and salutations friends! I recently came into the possession of a Lee Enfield No5. Jungle Carbine and I am rather perplexed at its markings. It seems to have a older serial number that I cant quite make out with a fairly easily readable serial number of AB5903 and has a B stamped onto...

    Hi, today I bought my very own Lee-Enfield No.4 MK1 Long Branch. Since Enfields are kind of hard to come by where I live, I did not have that much options to choose from. What I ended up with is this gal, full of cosmoline and with bolt that seems to be stiffer than I expected. So here I am to...

    Howdy folks, Newer collector and brand new forum member, I have a quick question for the Enfield experts. I just recently picked up a 1941 dated No4 Mk1 that went through armory refurbishment in 1943. Now the thing is the receiver and barrel cap are painted a dark green. I know of the existence...

    I have a No4 Mk2 that shoots extremely low. Attached picture is at 200 yds with 174gr BTHP, with the shortest front sight attached. Does anyone have a gunsmith they'd recommend? Plus if in the DFW/north Texas/southern Oklahoma area I have one I can ship it to but would prefer to hand it over in...

    I've seen some SMLEs produced in Britain or Australia with a copper ring on the side of their butt stocks. Does the ring have any special meanings, such as the tag of some particular armories, or the notice of some particular armies?

    Hello everyone This is my first post here, so please go easy on me if I'm in the wrong place. I'm trying to return my Lee Enfield back to original military configuration. Unfortunately the last owner sporterized it and painted it with what I hope is spray paint and not some type of bake on...

    Hello all, I’m on the hunt for a military stock set for my 1944 Long Branch No4 Mk1* Lee Enfield. I’ve not had much luck finding a set and I’m assuming a lot of you on here have been in the same position. Would love to buy a set or even a non firing “drill” No4 mk1 rifle to have the furniture...
