Stock Number A140
And now for something very exciting! New made reproductions of the brackets that were “Locally Sourced” (meaning from the local machine shop) by several regiments to allow the fitment of the Schmidt & Bender L13A1 telescope, fitted at the time to the L96A1 sniper rifle, to the L42A1 sniper rifle in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s in place of the L1A1 telescope issued with the L42. There has, as I am sure you will all be aware, been much discussion, conjecture, opinion, romance and arguments surrounding the existence of these brackets originally ever since Mr. Skennerton made reference to them in his book. There are some who are very certain in their belief that they were never made and will insist that they know all that there is to know… There are others who will wax lyrical on how beloved the old L42 was that the original brackets were made to keep them in service long after obsolescence… Others will tell of secret squirrel exercises where it wouldn’t have been politically expedient to have “current” kit found… I have heard all points of view on this matter and I have met people in a real position to comment on their existence and they have produced original examples to view and handle therefore whatever the motives behind the production of the original brackets they exist – End Of!
Now, these brackets here are the fruit of a lot of hard work and are a faithful copy of an original example provided, even the cutter sweeps in the machining marks have been replicated by using a cutter of the same radius and approximating the revolutions per inch. They have been phosphated to a very close match to the original provided and they are frankly superb. They are built to accept 26mm tubes (as the original was) and they collimate well on L42’s and 4T’s with correctly fitted pads, they are supplied with thumb wheels as standard but may be supplied with allen screws (as has been noted on originals) as an alternative if requested. A limited number have been made and I have been asked to retail them for the maker, the price includes VAT at 20%. £430.00
.303 Enfield P13 Trials Rifle 2285
.303 Enfield Pattern 1913 Trials Rifle. Wow, when did you last see a P13 on the market?? This example is mentioned in the original ammunition trials paperwork I am told (I have not had the chance to read it all as yet..) and is matching (original) numbers to the action, bolt and stock – the original barrel having been changed for a .303 example (also numbered to the rifle, with no other rifle numbers) possibly during the life of the trials. Very good bore with crisp rifling gauging at .30275”. A pretty much unrepeatable opportunity. £12,500.00
Stock No 2285
.303 No1Mk6 Trials Rifle. A very unusual opportunity to acquire a No1Mk6 that never got to be built up for trials but was finished as an issue rifle in 1941 at Fazakerly in the days following Dunkirk when we were desperate for functioning rifles. Correct trials action with SBN8 stamped under the wrist for Steel Batch Number 8, the magazine cut-off slot has never been cut and the safety relief has never been finished but the Mk6 action side is unmistakeable. Early production woodwork and mint barrel gauging at .302”. I have never seen another and an absolute ‘must’ for any Enfield collector. £3,995.00

Very rarely encountered in the UK with those that are seen being in mostly relic condition this example is in fair overall order throughout and has matching numbers to the barrel, bolt, action, stock and forend (feint). The barrel is also fair (actually the best Lebel barrel I have encountered) with very strong rifling although with some corrosion. Plenty of small armourers repairs to the stock and forend however they are original to the rifle and all add t its history. A very rare opportunity to acquire what is probably the rarest WW1 issue rifle in shootable condition. £1,850.00

A superb kit in superb condition throughout. £7,395.00

Generally miss-matched through service upgrades and repairs but still with its original nose cap with Mk1 straight foresight ears and typical action shaped for the floating charger guide but now fitted with a conversion guide. £1,100.00

.303 BSA built commercial target rifle in Service B form, Circa 1930. Stunning looking BSA made commercial SMLE target rifle in Service B form with target sights, long butt and special bedding.

The barrel gauges at .30475” and displays a fair bit of wear however it still shoots with considerable accuracy and is the original, numbered, barrel and so for now I have retained it for originality.
