The Lee-Enfield bolt-action, magazine-fed, repeating rifle was the main firearm used by the military forces of the British Empire and Commonwealth during the first half of the 20th century. The No. 4 action is similar to the previous Enfields, but lighter, stronger, and easier to mass produce. The No. 4 rifle was considerably heavier than the No. 1 Mk. III Enfield, largely due to its heavier barrel. Unlike the earlier SMLE, the No 4 Lee-Enfield barrel protrudes from the end of the forestock. The Mark 2 variation of the No. 4 placed the trigger on the body of the action as opposed to the trigger guard as on previous models. This rifle stock and buttplate have been refinished and the magazine serial number doesn't match. The rifle features a shrouded blade front sight, an adjustable aperture rear sight, and a 2-position thumb safety. Its wood, metal, and bore are in very good condition.
