.303 SMLE Rifle

The .303 SMLE Rifle, in its many forms, was the soldier’s rifle of Great Britain and the Commonwealth countries; most notably on issue in WW1, WW2 & The Korean War and was extensively used by service personnel in post war peace keeping duties through-out the free world.
Still widely used in club competition and by many sporting shooters, the .303 SMLE Rifle stands apart as a fine example of circa 1900 engineering and craftsmanship in an era where computer aided design and manufacture were simply unknown.
