    Lee Enfield Carbine Mk1

    Hello!

    Just wanted to share the LEC sporters I got in today, I plan on rebuilding the rifle with a stock set from Ross Rifle Restoration.

    Just wanted to ask, as the butt socket has been scrubbed is there any other way to date the rifle?

    Thanks,

    CanadianLanBoy

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.

    Neat little carbine; shame about the stock. It definitely deserves a restoration to its former glory. As for the buttsocket marking, the date under the "enfield" has clearly been obliterated.

    One method would be to check for inspection dates, usually under the barrel that is normally hidden by the stock. Another method would be to see if there is a date anywhere near the stock cartouche (if it hasnt been sanded, and if its the original stock to the carbine). I own two ex-Canadian LE carbines, and I noticed a date near the "M&D" stamp to closely mirror the production date of the carbine. It's certainly not definitive, but might narrow it down.

    Good luck on your endeavor.

    There are ways to retrieve scrubbed details. Do a search, it might be easier than we think.
