Default Lee Enfield scope mounts

I have a 1942 SMLE III Lee and was wondering where to get mounts for it.

The b-Square mounts are what I found after a short web search, apparently, they slip over receiver and attach to the ejector screw & rear sight cross-pin. Sounds like a friction mount and that will move!!

I'd take the rifle to a gun smith and have it done professionally.

This is an example of how NOT to do it.

Here is an S&K Item #1365 mount & rings I put on this 1941 Lithgow over 10 yrs ago. Rock Solid thru 500 rds of surplus ball. They are kinda pricey but work real well.

Good advice about taking it to a gunsmith. Unless you have a Dremel and know how to fit them, (if your rifle needs it) they can be toast real quick!

Good look'in old rifle ya got there! Ken

I think that is a #4 Mark II and brownells has a mount for $75.00 that ataches to your reciever using the ejector and safety screws.
Part # 100-000-319AC

It is a No1Mk2*.

I have an S&K mount on a sporterized No4Mk1 and it has been rock solid. Not sure if S&K still offers the mount featured in the post above, though.
