    My first SHTLE MKIII.

    I bought it real cheap. Receiver, sawed off barrel, matching bolt and a bag of parts. Love a challenge. I now own most of parts including wood. Problem is now where did he come from and where has he been. I dont have much to go by. Any help on where to loop up. Doesn't say much on plate other other than SHTLE and 1913 km iii no asterisk. Thanks

    Welcome to the world of LE's.

    The main thing to remember is that these were the last of the Victorian era 'hand built' rifles. Do not expect parts from one rifle to fit another (particularly the woodwork) without 'work' being needed.
    If you are changing the barrel, then you will need new bolt components to get the correct headspace.

    Very few parts will actually 'plug & play'.

    Posting pictures of any and all markings will allow you to get as much information from the experts as you can handle.

    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...

    Manufactured at the Enfield factory.
    Served in South Africa (arrow in the U = SA ownership mark)
    The Z on the barrel means it has been condemmed at base workshops.
