Hello gents, i just bought this curious thing in flea market in here.
Lee-Enfield rifle made from all wood. The shape is well made and really similar with the original Lee-Enfield including the length
The condition of the wood. Some chips and sign of old age
There's some trace remain of dark green paint
I think it once have all green color like this
And based from all of this. I think this curious made rifle was once made by the TRI (Tentara Republik Indonesia) or it's successor TNI for training it's new recruit (or maybe during the japanese era as well?). Maybe both the shortage of rifle or the policy of TNI at that time for it's new recruit.
Using of the wood made rifle both during japanese era and during the independence war in 1945-49.
Using the length model like arisaka complete with bayonet?
Hope you enjoy and thank you for watching and Is there anyone ever see this kind of wood made rifle for training before? Maybe the same lee-enfield?
