The Legendary Lee Enfield
This week, Shooting USA also features the Lee Enfield MK III, also known as the SMLE for “Short Magazine Lee Enfield”. Introduced in 1907, the SMLE was the primary British infantry weapon during WWI. The Lee Enfield’s speed of cycling, versatility, and reliability made it one of the great 20th-Century battle rifles. “I’ve never read a disparaging word by a WWI British soldier against his Enfield,” says Firearms Historian Garry James. “His government [gave] him a really good firearm.”
