Nothing fancy here, just short and to the point shooting action, this time featuring the Lee-Enfield. This particular model is a No. 4 Mk1* made right here in the good old USoA for the British, during WWII, by the Savage Corporation. By far, the Lee-Enfield was, in my opinion, the finest bolt action rifle issued as a main battle rifle during WWII. The bolt's smooth and very fast action, the high capacity magazine, the excellent trigger and the superb sights put the Lee-Enfield in a league of its own.

My favorites are still the 1903 followed by Arisakas...

Ive been thinking of getting rid of my No.1 and try to get a P14 (or a M1917 ;) ) I just really prefer the Mauser design....

You mean like this ? This is my 2A...............
Yep.:p

I looked at the other pic again, and the magazine gave it away. I hadn't paid attention to the magazine before.

I bought a #4savage at a gun shop a few years back. Condition was new as it was held in reserve in Ireland till released as surplus. This rifle was the biggest piece of junk ever. I'm sure others made were better but, this one would get closer to hitting the target by throwing it.

Thanks for sharing the pics of your interesting Enfields.

My very first gun bought as a Christmas present when I was 13. Mom and Dad paid $37 at Sears. Was origionally sporterized by Golden State Arms. I couldnt hit the broad side of a barn from inside. I later replaced the origional cut down stock with the fagen and made the scope mount from a piece of angle iron and a one piece Weaver base (pretty ugly but it works). It now shoots a 1.5 MOA group and is my favorite rifle to shoot.

A #4 mk 1 Savage I picked up at an estate sale. Looks like it has been refinished.
