SMLE
Lithgow 1943
Calibre .22
Serial No E35133
Price: £750

Very Good Condition

Ex- Australian Air Force

This is a Genuine Australian Lithgow No2 MkIV*

Converted in April 1949 from a 1943 rifle, as marked on the butt & butt socket.

Correct Parkerised Finish, magazine marked ".22", all parts are marked with Lithgow inspectors marks,
the woodwork was manufactured by Slazenger. The butt looks to be the original 1943 one, with the additional .22 conversion deatils impressed in.
The action is marked AF on the left side which is the Australian Air Force ownership marking

Australian .22 SMLEs are un-common in the UK.

With access to military Ranges deminishing & the current cost of .303 ammunition this a more affordable way of still
shooting the Classic Lee Enfied

The bore on this rifle is in Mint Condition

*** Will be available in around two weeks once it has been stripped & serviced ***
