Hi folks,
Been offered a genuine .22 Lee Enfield No.1 dating 1899 with converion to .22 from .303 in 1909. Matching numbers and totally as new.
Anyone shot one of these in .22? Quite tempted but not sure I can live with it long term. Single shot by the way, magazine retained to catch the spent cases which is pretty cool.
Used by British Army to train new recruits possibly at WW1 and WW2.

Sounds cool. What does the barrel look like? It's probably been shot a lot!

Was too late... already sold! Got my eye on an M1 carbine now. Trouble is they're pricey over here and need to convince the lady of the house it is a must have item.... wish me luck!
