    It has a strange butt disk.

    What do...

    These, in Italy, were rifles belonging to the Navy. The Navy has always been a rather "particular branch".

    Lee-Enfield for Parade

    Here, in Italy there are some SMLE "For Parade"; they have cromed magazine, nosecap and band.

    Have they been so modified in G.B., in Canada or here?

    Thanks. Giancarlo

    Thanks Roger,

    So the S.N. was placed, during 1945, indifferently and simultaneously on the socket or on the side wall. Quite right?

    BSA No. 4 of 1945

    This is my 1945 No. 4 BSA. All of the number match and I don't think it's been through an FTR.
    The S.N. is on the action rail, left side. When the S.N. was moved from the socket to the action rail,...

    Can be. The inner diameter of the muzzle ring is 14 mm.

    But the "double R" mark (dowgraded, drill purpose) makes me think it was used on a cadet rifle. I'm wrong?

    Even the MLM Mark II has a...

    The buttstock bears a mark, the letter G in a roundel (I - I - G and the broad arrow, I supposed, the mark is faint) and the III: a buttstock from an Indian SMLE Mk III , I think.

    A Restored .410 SMLE?

    I saw this Lee-Enfield No. 1 Mk III; it was, seems to me, a .410 smooth bore, but now it's back in .303 cal.

    It's all Ok? When was the restoration done?

    Thank you.
