    Default My Long Lee Enfield

    Here's a Long Lee Enfield I have. Serial # 7527, Mk I, BSA & M CO. dated 1896. 303 cal. The serial number places the rifle as used by Canadians and and a good possibility in the Boer war by Canadian troops. It is all correct and matching with about 95% original bluing remaining and is complete with the volley sights. It also has the almost always missing, clearing (not cleaning) rod, used to clear the chamber of a stuck case. It replaced the cleaning rod of the earlier models and has no eye for a patch. The bore is about good-VG condition with strong rifling. A very nice looking excellent condition rifle. It’s complete with a correct good condition bayonet w/o scabbard. The clearing rod fits in a hole in the bayonet‘s handle.

    Berthier92 the rifle was imported from Canada to the states where I got it. I did some research then and found that it was in the block of serial numbers that were sold/issued to Canada and Canadian troops served in the Borer war with Long Lees. So that's why I said there was a possibility it was there.
    Not sure how you could determine the history of your Berthier rifle though. Fortunately there was some infomation on the serial number rifle sales to Canada on the Long Lees however I can't recall what site I found this info on anymore though. Ray

    Really super LLE. I am jealous. I haven't seen one in that condition in a very long time.
