Guest Posted 26 May , 2016 Share Posted 26 May , 2016 Hi all, New to the forum and was hoping some of you guys would help me out. I have recently acquired a 1916 LSA Co Lee Enfield or I think it's 1916 with Mag Cut off but no plate, but looking at that picture it looks like 1918... It might be! But anyway I was just looking around it and found some interesting things on the gun. Firstly the Butt Stock disc removed and plugged and it looks like a pretty good job except the chunk taking out of the middle of it. Also noticed that it had a Lithgow? Rear sight with a Lithgow/Australian stamp on the sight spring. I'm guessing it's been in Australian hands and/or sent to Lithgow at some point as I think it may have been re-barralled there also with '45 stamped. I may be wrong but also stamped Two D's with 53 underneath them both. The receiver, bolt, nose cap, rear site (Force Matched) and forestock (Just behind the Nose Cap) all seem to match with the same SN being N51406 or just 51406 in the rear sights case. I was wondering if anyone could add to it, correct me or give me some more information on the gun as it would be interesting to know it's service history (If any) and where it has and hasn't been! Thanks in advance! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
