Lee Enfield Rifle

Lee Enfield Rifle

"Highly Recommended. A unique program that tells the story of Britain's core infantry weapon during World War I and World II. In addition to the history of the rifle, experts fire on SMLA (Short Magazine Lee Enfield) and there are scenes never or rarely seen before." -Militaria Mart
This program features Martin Farnan, Director of Shooting with the National Rifle Association, rifle expert John Hutchins, and Peter Laidler of the Infantry Weapons Collection, and offers a fascinating insight into the bolt action rifle that was one of the finest battle weapons ever produced. Rare archival footage includes images of the first Lee Enfield 1865 model; a Lee Enfield found at Saddam Hussein's palace, a Turkish production Mauser barrel with a Lee Enfield bolt action, a hyperscope, which was an important accessory, and rifles found off the coast of Dunkirk after years in the sea. And thanks to the unwavering research efforts of veteran Larry Clarke-Smith, we learn how the quality of the earliest war version of the SMLE enabled British troops to hold their own despite being heavily outnumbered by enemy troops; also how in 1944 the rifle was adapted to produce a lighter and smaller version that was easier for troops to carry in the heat of the jungle. 2011 CA 100 min.
