Greetings all from a long-time collectors of Lee-Enfield rifles but not the same as the Enfield rifle.

My first LE was a No1MkIII made by NRF in 1918. It was a gift from my grandfather when I turned 16. It was my first centerfire but not my last. Years ago, before he died, I was a member of Skip Stratton's Enfield Research Associates out of the University of Idaho even though I live north of the 49th parallel.

More later.

As someone said, "The difference between a Communist and a Socialist is that the Socialist doesn't have all the guns yet." I believe that the difference between a Communist and a Socialist is that the Socialist does not have the stones to admit that they are a Communist.

Hi folks, Cody from Florida. I came across this site today. I inherited several guns from my dad about 50 yrs ago and I am hoping that I can get some help to find out more on their history and maybe value. I have only shot the M1 Carbine, it was fun to use. I've kept these stored in cases for years. None have any rust etc.. Like to find out the best way to clean them up since my dad left me the old WWII stuff in the green cans. I figure things have progressed since then.

So I hope I post my questions in the right places later on. Most of the rifles are WWII military either US or foreign.

That's the spirit - cleaning the cosmoline out of every nook and cranny is part of getting to know your milsurps. Welcome back.

Hello!.... Thanks for the add to the group! I have 2 old Enfields that i purchased as a young adult back in the 80's, both in original configuration. I have enjoyed reading some of the posts here in regards to the various identification markings on the old milsurplus rifles, and am looking forward to see what the group can tell me about the ones I have. I never really thought about the different marking on them as they were originally purchased for the enjoyment of shooting them. I will post pictures when I can.

Cheers!....
