This Lee-Enfield SMLE No. 5 MK1 (Jungle Carbine) chambered in .303 British is in excellent condition. The rifle was made by ROF Fazakerley and is marked 2/46 for February 1946 year of manufacture. The stock has no cracks but does have minor dings and scratches that are normal on service rifles of this age. The finish is darker on the bottom hand guard and butt stock than the upper hand guard. The bore is good, 3.5/5 with crisp rifling but does exhibit some signs of minor pitting. The bolt is good and the action is smooth. Barrel and receiver are very good with a nice finish. All hardware is present including screws, sling mounts, butt plate, and barrel band. The magazine is not matching number to the rifle and may be after market. The serial numbers for receiver and trigger assembly match but other parts do not. There is moderate cosmoline on bolt and receiver.
The Rifle is marked with the following:
No 5 MK 1 ROF
MK 55 – rack number (butt)
Delta 2 (stock behind trigger)
NP `303` 2*22” 18.5 TONS on barrel
M+M (importation mark) under barrel
