Ex Cambs Police

There were around 767 manufactured by Enfield, not all were assembled.

Police forces purchased Enforcers depending on their budgets at the time; some purchased complete kits including target sights & Pecar scopes,
other purchased basic rifles, and then purchased the scopes etc as their budgets allowed.

A few original Enforcers were surplused in the late 1990s the rest approximately 50% were destroyed by the individual Police Forces.

T
his is a Genuine Police Issued Enfield Enforcer serial number 320; it is matching on the action, bolt & magazine.


The barrel is original as it bears the “Patent Applied for” mark only found on genuine Enforcers and the bore is in good condition.

The Enforcer Sniper rifles are rarer than No4Ts & L42A1s rifles because of the small quantities manufactured (767) and around 50% were destroyed.
