    L42A1 CES

    I was recently lucky enough to find one of the L42 era plastic SR telescope cases in excellent condition to add to the L42 CES
    It was a good excuse to get the kit together and post a few pics

    Mine are not the best, but they are not too bad. I can think of lots of Enfields I'd rather have but instead of constantly striving for more, sometimes it's good to be satisfied with what one has...

    Well. well, well, - the L42 with CES that was for sale on Guntrader for £19,500 has sold.
    No idea of actual achieved price, but the prices have only been going 'one way'.


    Enfield, Lee 7.62x51 L42A1 Full CES Bolt Action Second Hand Rifle for sale. Buy for 19,500.

    The seller is a member on here, it was advertised in the For Sale section when it first went up

    Sold or withdrawn?
