The Lee-Enfield, Rifle, N.9 Adopted in 1956
The Royal Navy contracted for approximately 3,000 of these rifles, which were delivered between 1956/7 and 1960.
The rear-sight on the Navy issue rifle used a standard No.4 sight leaf with an additional 25 yard calibration on the left-hand side of the elevation slide.
In 1962 Parker-Hale were advertising their own commercial version of this rifle marked No.9, these were never military issue.
This example has just come in and will be available in about two weeks once it has been stripped, checked, cleaned & tested.
