This gun is up for auction as a parts gun only. The gun has excessive headspace and closes on a Field Gauge. This gun should only be considered as a parts gun for repairing other guns or as a fixer-upper that may require parts.
This is an Enfield No. 1 MK III bolt-action rifle. This rifle was manufactured in 1966 at the Rifle Factory Ishapore in India. This particular rifle is chambered in .308 WIN. The barrel measures 25". The bore is dirty but looks to be in decent condition with good rifling.
The finish is scratched and worn, but overall the metal is in good condition. The stock is uncut and the wood appears to have it's original finish with a cartouch on the right-side of the stock. The wood has the usual handling marks found in this type of military gun, but no cracks. Also, someone painted a #4 on the left-side of the stock (see photos). The stock has all it's hardware and original steel buttplate. The gun appears to be fully intact with it's original sights, 10 round box magazine and original finish on the stock and handguards (see photos).
Other than the excessive headspace, the action is smooth and the bolt locks tight. The gun currently has a #1 bolt head. We do not have any other bolt heads to correct the headspace problem. We have not test-fired this gun so we cannot guarantee it's function, however it appears to be fully functional. Serial #N9397. STK. #13069.
You may want to pick-up a different numbered bolt head to correct the headspace problem since the gun appears to be fully intact or use this Enfield #1 MK III as a parts gun since it still has all the original parts present.
