    Default AIA No.4 Mk4 7.62mm x 51 rifle

    This is the Aust. International Arms version of the Lee Enfield rifle in the 7.62mm Nato round-intended as a modern service range rifle in a calibre thats easy to get at a reasonable price-the .303 LEs are starting to show their age and increasing collectibility as well as the difficulty of getting decent quality ammo for range shoots. The rifle is based on the No.4 action but with numerous improvements including a chromed barrel (a new surplus M139 minigun item) for greatly increased life. Sights are basically intended to be a telescopic type but it can be fitted with old type Singer Mk I adjustable iron type replacing the Mk II flip 2 position battle sights that are factory fit. The finish on this one is Parkerised.

    Others in the related family are sporter/hunter types with shorter barrels, less woodwork or other calibres such as 5.56mm or 7.62mm x 39.

    Very nice weapon youve got there and first one ive heard of in 7.62mm. I used to have a deactivated WW2 No.4 Lee Enfield and i also had a WW2 Bren but stupidly sold em a few years back, but i think weve all done these things at some point. Whats this rifle like to shoot??? Thanks for showing it! Best Regards, Tim.

    Hi,
    Very nice iv not seen that style before it looks really good, but i bet i can give a kick at 7.62,
    in a No4, 303 is bad enough in them. Thanks for showing us.

    Thanks for the comments-this type of woodwork mimics the service No.4 but also comes in many different styles-this is a modern rifle, made from 2000 onwards-I collect LEs mostly so thats why I bought her-was at my local dealer as the first owner sold it after having shot 40 rounds! It's heavier than the wartime model-weighs 11 pounds (2 pounds more or so). I don't generally shoot, I collect but one of the Canadian members 'Mick' has one and does shoot it.

    I looked at those a number of years ago at the SHOT Show. Beautifully made. Your uses modified M14 mags.

    I tried to order a couple, .308 and 7.62x39, but the import ended up being a problem and they never came through.

    Very nice!!!
