    Hi, from Nth. Co. Antrim, N Ireland

    As above, I am joining this forum because today I quite unexpectedly** found(while repairing a loft ladder for my mother, which involved lifting flooring in the roofspace)

    My grandfathers UVF rifle, a L.E. I, dated 1898, Ser No. 5202 N, with a broad arrow stamp on the brass buttplate with the No. 540 beneath.

    The rifle has a foresight protector, volley? sights, and the magazine is retained by a single link of chain. I believe there is a magazine cut-off fitted. I also found the matching bayonet.

    There is light surface rust to the outside of the barrel, but the bolt and action are spotless and slick

    Fortunately I am a long time member of a rifle and pistol club and hope/am reasonably sure I can add this rifle to my F.A.C.



    Perhaps someone on here can advise if I can still get suitable 303 ammunition for this very early? L.E. rifle.

    **Unexpectedly, since I scoured the farmstead and farmhouse some 50 to 45 years ago, searching for Grandfathers UVF rifle, obviously without success. I imagine a mischievous bachelor Uncle planted the seed, or perhaps it was seeing a photo of Grandfather on horseback in uniform, with his rifle. And I really must track that photo down.

    Regards,
    Marcus

    Hello everyone new to the forum, been here many times over the years and enjoyed the wealth of knowledge and experience of others - thank you to everyone involved!
    I now I have actually joined up after acquiring a Lee Enfield No4 rifle! It needs a couple of parts to get going which are hard to find but hoping in the not to distant future will be going to the range to see what it’s like.
    Thanks again to the forum and members 👍
    Regards
