Welcome to AllAboutEnfields, a site dedicated to the Lee-Enfield Rifle. Even though there is a bit of a work to be done, I hope you find it both informative and laid back, as well as a place you will enjoy visiting from time to time.
Whilst called ”All About Enfield’s”, I intend to cover a wider range of the Lee-Enfield “extended family”. As time permits It will include a few distant cousins, a contemporary or two and the odd rival. It will also cover such topics as reloading, using lead cast projectiles and paper patching for the .303.
My goal for this site was to capture aspects of the Enfield history that I feared will be lost with time. So, with this in mind, I thought I would create a small website showcasing collections I’ve been fortunate enough to see as well as collecting information from some very clever people.
Included is a section called “Not Just Enfield’s”, aimed to add a bit of balance and to broaden the appeal. Topic’s also include suppressed loads on a .308 and lead casting for a 25/06 as well as the .303 and .308, so theres a bit of something for everyone here.
A big thanks to all those who have supplied photos, leant rifles, written articles and given support in this venture! Where possible, I have acknowledged the source of any images that I have used, however, some people have asked not to be identified. Something about that particular rifle not being quiet known at home….Yet!
I profess to be no expert, just a keen bloke who likes his .303′s! So on that note, have a read and I hope you enjoy it and let me know what you think! If you have something that you think I might like to add to the site please drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org
