CLASSIC LEE ENFIELD SMLE 7.62 X51

£475.00

Externally the Ishapore 2A/2A1 rifle is based upon (and is almost identical to) the .303 British calibre SMLE Mk III* rifle, with the exception of the distinctive “square” (10 or 12 round) magazine

The Ishapore 2A and 2A1 rifles are often incorrectly described as “.308 conversions.” In fact, the 2A/2A1 rifles are not conversions of .303 calibre SMLE Mk III* rifles: they were designed and built right from the outset to fire 7.62mm NATO ammunition. Although the 7.62mm NATO and commercial .308 Winchester ammunition are physically interchangeable, these weapons were not designed for use with commercial .308 Winchester ammunition.

THIS RIFLE IS IN GOOD CONDITION ALL ROUND, THERE IS AN OLD REPAIR TO THE TOP PIECE OF WOOD FAIRLY COMMON ON SMLE’S.

THE BOLT, BARREL, RECEIVER AND THE FRONT NOSE PLATE ARE ALL MATCHING NUMBERS, THE WOOD ALSO CARRIES THE MATCHING NUMBER.

IT CARRIES ALL THE MARKINGS AND IS DATED 1966
