A lot of people think the British Enfields were the best battle rifle in WW1. They are solid weapons. As I recall an old .303 Enfield was the first centerfire firearm I ever owned. Actually I traded some chickens for it when I was about 12 and promptly got in trouble when I accidentally shot down one of my Grandfathers Dogwood trees. That gun went straight in the closet and I didn't get to touch it again for 6 months. That one is long since gone but have a few more. This is a SMLE Mk III (Short Magazine Lee Enfield) or affectionately known as Smellys.
