British No.1 Mk III Lee-Enfield Rifle, SMLE
Adopted by the British Military on January 26, 1907.
Adapted from an original design by James Paris Lee and the Royal Arms Factory at Enfield, England.
Mk III refers to the third incarnation of the No.1 rifle.
This rifle was also manufactured in Australia and India. The Mk III was used in both WWI and WW2.
Probably one of the fastest cycling bolt action rifles made for military use. The rifle pictured above was manufactured in 1941, in England, but also has Australian markings on the receiver.
