    Unhappy 1944 Lithgow Lee Enfield No.1 MkIII*

    For Sale:

    Lee Enfield No.1 Mk III* .303 British

    Made by Lithgow in 1944 (appears to have been issued to Australian Forces from what I can tell).

    Comes with 1x NZ marked Bayonet (does not match rifle) & 172 rounds of Ammunition (60x seller and beliot, rest are 1970s Greek Surplus) & 8x Charger Clips

    Of all the Enfields I have owned this is by far the best, it shoots bang on at 100m with the 200m sight setting. Barrel is shinny and probably hasn't been fired much.

    The Rifle is in excellent condition and may have been arsenal refurbished?? not sure, but the action is perfect, and bolt looks hardly used. The guy who owned it before me put 10 rounds through it over the last 20 years.

    It is with great sadness that I sell this rifle, but I have hit hard times financially and will be selling it along with a few other rifles. Come hence I'm not prepared to drop my price, I payed $950 for the rifle and god knows how much on the ammo only 6 months ago. I will be listing a Mosin Nagant 1942 with a load of ammo as well.

    PRICE : $1000

    Thanks Tikka, she really is. I wasn't looking for a Lee Enfield at the time, but she was in such good shape, the magazine didn't have even a mark on the magazine follower when I got it. Bluing is excellent.

    Update: I have a member who is going to check the rifle out and as he messaged first he has first right of refusal. I will update the thread if he chooses not to take it. Thanks for your interest guys!

    I have a member looking at it soon, and another one of our great membership lined up after that. So it should be sold soon yes. But I will update the ad if for some reason it has no interested party.

    I have a No4 mk1/2 unfired still in factory greased paper wrapping in my safe with armoury tags and matching number bayonet. So far it’s been a will power exercise not to unwrap, might not last much longer!
