Hiya,

Just picked up my first Long Lee. It's an Enfield made 1901 M.L.E 1*.

Th regimantal markings are S.A.M.R which I believe to be, correct me if I'm wrong, South Austrailian Mounted Rifles. My only doubt is the U with broad arrowinside on the butt...Isn't this South African? Couldn't this be South African Mounted Rifles (formed in 1911) I know that the dealer imported this from South Africa...but know litle else. Any help would be great.

My pics are crap...I'll put some better ones on tomorrow after my trip to the range...The barrel is not in the best of shape....but well for what I paid I couldn't be happier.














Cheers (-:

109 years old and it looks like it has been in a glass case the entire time. Is the bore in as good a shape?

Nice rifle.

When you do more pictures, find a plain background; that one makes me dizzy.
