Default Video - Lee Enfield Sporting Rifle

I turned a junked out British military Lee Enfield No.4 Mk1 rifle into a Mannlicher-stocked sporting rifle about 15 years ago. It has been my most used deer rifle since then.

If I found one in similar shape these days I'd be more likely to find a military stock and restore it, but I'm still happy I built this one.

In the video, I'll shoot it, and I'll show you how to convert the magazine and trigger guard to a sporting configuration.

I just couldn't bring myself to change mine. I think it's one of the prettiest guns ever made/modified/bubbaized. My friends say I'm crazy and they use to laugh at my No4, until they seen how it performs.

This is my SMLE it was a friends until he bent the barrel 90° and smashed the stock (don't ask). So I took it rebarreled it for 243 win and milled a custom low pro scope mouth out of a piece of angle iron. Slapped a Tupperware stock on it an a "OK" scope and it shoots. .5 oma with a few pet loads. I don't think there are Many if any other 243 smle's out there.
