    Default 1918 Lee - Enfield: One Of My Birthday Gifts

    1918 Enfield. My GF has good taste! From last year. I am wondering if anyone can help me with the stamps. I think this may have been used with an Indian division. If better pics are needed, I'll get them.

    Those stamps are modern US import marks.

    Look under the bolt handle on the metal band on the stock.

    Cheers, Ade.

    gday, nice rifle , RFI Ishapore in India used 'GRI' as an inspection or veiw mark along with a crown and a number, if this is an enfield manufactured rifle with Ishapore inspection marks it was probably refirbished in india.
    the electro pencilled tgi knox tn is a dealer in the US that imported the rifle ( you probably knew this)
    what an excellent bday gift

    EFD on the safety catch is an enfield marking and actually the GR with the E on the reciever looks enfield as well....... i cant really see any indian markings.

    Check the barrel, wood, butt plate, almost everything is marked on these rifles
    RSAF Enfield marked their rifles with an E or EFD or Enfield
    There should be a serial number on the bolt, reciever, nosecap, they should all match

    regards Paul
