Very Good Condition
This is the standard MkIII* .303 SMLE rifle manufactured
by the National Rifle Factory (NRF) in 1918
This rifle has neen renumbered at some point, the original numbers are barred out and has been re-numbered to N96.
As war was looming the large store of war reserve stocks were being prepared, this example is typical of the programmes in 1938/39 where many were rebarreled. This rifle was rebarreled in 1938 as marked on the left side of the barrel.
This is a nice standard MkIII* SMLE by one of the rarer manufacturers and the icing on the cake is the FF marks denoting Irish ownership.
A nice rifle that has an excellent almost new bore.
