Lee Enfield SMLE Training Rifle
No2 MkIV*
LSA 1914
Calibre .22
Serial No L83016

Price: £1,100

Excellent Condition

The MkIV was approved for Land Service in 1921 and is a conversion from the SMLE Mk III & III*.
Due to nomenclature changes in 1926, it became the “Rifle No2 MkIV*”.
The original designation marking on the butt socket were removed & new ones stamped below the Royal Cypher & original year of manufacture.

The magazine was added in May 1925 with the spring & follower removed.
The purpose of the magazine was to catch spent cases.

The bolt has an off centre floating firing pin & larger extractor claw. There were circa 25,000 converted at Enfield.

This particular rifle has matching serial numbers on the Action, Barrel, Nose Cap & Bolt.

The rear sight fitted is windage adjustable. The "S" marked butt fitted is slightly shorter than standard by approximately 12mm.

.22 Lee Enfield’s are become scarce & hard to obtain due to the re-assurgance of
small bore classic rifle events such as the Mini Methuen & Field Firing Match
