Hello, I was just inquiring as to whether or not there are any companies that specialize in Lee Enfield rifles like CanWest Sport Distributors www.lee-enfieldrifles.com still in business? Any gunsmiths familiar with the Lee Enfield rifle platform would also be greatly appreciated. I'm just looking for contact information on any company/anyone that works on Lee Enfield rifles. Thanks in advance for any and all thoughts, opinions, or answers.

Regards,

I doubt many (anyone) has his experience or knowledge with Enfields

Interesting carbine.

LEC is as you deduced Lee Enfield Carbine. There were a number of variations.

What you have started out as an 1898 Lee Enfield cavalry carbine. It was converted into a Royal Irish Constabulary carbine, witnessed by the bushing fitted to the muzzle. This is so that the thin lightweight barrel of the cav carbine could mount a P1888 bayonet, the barrel being too small to fit the bayonet ring.


How does it shoot?

P1892 trials cavalry carbine (one of 100 made)
1894 Lee Metford cavalry carbine
1896 Lee Enfield cavalry carbine
1902 New Zealand carbine (missing top hand guard)
1901 Royal Irish Constabulary carbine (a factory conversion)

There is one more official conversion, that being a Baltic carbine conversion of the CLLE rifle, but rare as rare can be.

Many thanks, I do need to find out more on that Rare Baltic conversion you showed.. What is its story and why so rare???

Only thing cooler then an original untouched rifle is one that has been taken and converted by another Country to fit their needs..
Now the one Enfield conversion that comes to mind is the Turk Enfauser.. But I really like the look of that Baltic conversion also..

Now here is a loaded question.. Anyone know of some more Enfield official conversions like this???
