Deactivated Lee-Enfield SMLE Mk3 rifle, 'Peddled Scheme' dated 1917 **SOLD**


This is the standard infantry rifle of the British Army and the forces of the Empire during WW1, the  Lee-Enfield rifle no1 mark 3*, assembled at the Enfield factory in Middlesex, but comprising of components made by smaller engineering companies who were part of the 'Peddled Scheme'. The butt socket is clearly stamped with the Royal Cypher of George V, indicating military issue,  the date of 1917, followed by the model SHT.L.E. III*. To the left of the bolt and on the trigger guard/mag housing is marked SSA, The Standard Small Arms Co, who made the action body.  This rifle has all authentic furniture in very good condition, fitting and matching in colour very well and with full upper handguards and marked brass butt disc, though I would say the upper handguards have been replaced at some time as they were prone to splitting. Of particular interest is matching serial numbers to breech, barrel, bolt, and nosecap. The rearsights have been replaced with the earlier and more desirable 'windage' adjustable sights, popular for their better accuracy.  The metalwork is also in excellent condition, retaining nearly all of it's blued finish, making this a lovely authentic example of this iconic rifle perfect for the reinactor or collector alike.  Generally known as the SMLE mk3, this rifle is fully field strippable, cocks and dry-fires, has a detachable magazine and comes complete with correct  brass-ended webbing sling and a clip of inert .303 ammunition. Deactivated in the UK with Certificate to UK specification.
