    L1a1 barrel ID ?

    I have a L1a1 barrel in excellent condition both in the bore and the exterior finish. The gas block is marked B69-960-2266 B60 . The barrel is marked B60-960-2006 with a R near the Knox , There are no other markings . Is it Britishicon made , chrome lined and date it was made ? Thanks for any help .

    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.

    Is the R as in a capital R or is it in a stylised form?

    Don’t know if relevant to the L1A1 but a singular letter R around the Knox on one of a Lee Enfields would indicate that rust had been found. Many armourers would have cut their teeth on the Enfields before moving across to the L1A1, possibly taking some of their markings/codings with them. But then again who knows?
