  • Description:

    An unusual example of a early 1900's delux sporting rifle.This example shows a 25 1/4 full rib barrel with ramp front and a 3 leaf African style rear sight. The rib shows full matting. The receiver ring shows hand schrolled engraving as does the socket. It would appear that the butt stock was replaced in some foreign country where the rifle was hunted. The carving might suggest Africa or Southeast Asia. The fore stock shows the standard English checkering and a horn tip. The 303 caliber bore shows light overall pitting associated with corresive primers but remains very shootable. See "The Lee Enfield Final Edition" page111-113. This was obviously a rifle associated with an English hunter on a grand safari.
