Historic British Enfield #4 MK1 Bolt Action Rifle in .303 British Caliber. (See Brutus Description.) These rifles have not been as readily available in the U.S. marketplace for several years now and we are proud to be able to offer this rifle for auction. The Enfield #4 Mk1 was the workhorse of the British Empire and they remain highly sought after by shooters, hunters, and collectors today.

If you would have asked me a few weeks ago if Classic would ever have any Enfield rifles to sell again I would have said that it was highly doubtful. You just never see these things anymore. But lo and behold here they are and we are sure proud to have them. Original #4 Mk1 model British Enfield rifles,.303 Caliber, Bolt Action. I don't know what theater of action this particular lot of rifles saw battle in because it could have been just about anywhere. The .303 Enfield was one of the most prominent battle rifles ever produced. Back in the late 80s and early 90s we were able to obtain these fairly easily but they have been largely gone for years. About the rifle. After running our last group of Enfield rifles that came out of the Samco liquidation, we thought that we would possibly never see Enfields in any quantities again. But this offer proves that miracles do happen. Someone saw our video and it just so happened that the very same someone was setting on his own nice pile of Enfields. They contacted us and you know what we said... of course, we want them. They sent us some pictures and after a long drawn out negotiation (that lasted about 30 seconds) we sealed the deal. What a deal it was too. While this rifle is not perfect (no Enfields are as they simply saw too much service) by Enfield surplus standards it is very nice and head and shoulders above what we offered last time. The wood will show some dents and dings as is typical to surplus, but for the most part it is not dark or discolored and actually looks pretty darn good. Metal is above average for Enfields as well. Heck, this rifle looks as good or better than the Enfields I was offering in the 1980s when they were somewhat readily available. We make no guarantee for bore condition on any surplus rifle but I have looked down a few . All that I have seen were serviceable and some looked pretty darn good.
Trust me ... You don't want to miss this.
No collection is complete without the addition of an Enfield.... Don't Miss This.......C&R Eligible
