So, I just up a 1918 Lee Enfield No1 Mk3* for $200.

The stock appears to be sported, but everything else looks normal. I really would like to find out about all the markings, and If I could put a original Enfield stock on it.

I would agree that the stock has been sporterized, but was the barrel cut?

I would still like to fin out what the markings mean. I've not been about to find a definite reference to the markings. I bought this rifle mostly as history piece. But It will also be added to my fun guns.

That is an aftermerket front sight and band. Your rifle's barrel has been bobbed.

Here is my Enfield not sure excatly what Model or issue maybe some can tell me. I bought it many many years ago in an Ace hardware store as surplus if memory serves right I think it was less than $50.00. It still shoots well. Some of the markings are hard to make out, if anyone is real serious in them I can make a pencil rubbing and send to you.

I just put a stock on it from a rifle that had been marked DP, and with red and white strips at the trigger. defiantly a better look.
