    Help plz !! Lee Enfield 1917 BSA

    there is a "T" stamp on top of my receiver as well as an "F" stamp. But JUST those two letters no FTR or FR for being repaired. It seems to be original minus being sporterized. Its a Canadianicon issued 1917 BSA SHTLE. it was found in an attic behind things and everything matches and has NO refurbished / reissued date stamp on it other then the number 17 on side.

    Show us the whole rifle. Only then can we tell you what you may have. Is it a full complete No1 with C broad arrow stamps or a sporter with a bit of rear handguard attached.

    It also still retains the hard to find stock marking disc, sometimes they have marks on the reverse. Have you looked?

    The C Broad Arrow property mark in that form originated around 1907, IIRC.
