    Lee-Enfield Sht. 22 Mk II

    I'm thinking about buying this rifle. The seller says the bolt is mismatched, but it does look like a Lee-Metford Mk II bolt to me. I am inquiring about the bore condition, which I should have done in my first message.

    The sight is a Mk III* sight, and the cocking piece is a later cocking piece. I found a post on another collector's site that says some of these guns were repaired in Canadaicon/Australiaicon/NZ/other countries with whatever parts they had on hand, so this could be OK.

    Original British 1892 Lee-Metford Mark II .22 caliber Conversion Short Rifl - Bolt Action Rifles at GunBroker.com : 914067168

    I'm curious what the forum thinks. The price seems a little high for a mismatched bolt, assuming the bore is in good shape, but these are quite rare.

    Thanks!

    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.  I will accept PayPal, Zelle, MO and good old checks (and cash if you want to stop by for a tour!).  CLICK BANNER to send me a PM for International pricing and shipping.

    The auction ended before I could move on it.

    It appears the seller is a FFL and the auction ended without any takers, hence if you try to contact the seller directly you might still be able to buy it.

    I did. It was on consignment. The consigner decided to not sell.

    I think that is priced way high the 22 short rifles normally go for about 25% more than a #2MK4
    Then show up on gunbroker on a regularly basis
    A long time ago I found 22Sht MK 1 on it
