The Lee-Enfield Rifle Number 4 Mark I was built in England at a number of factories: Namely, the Royal Ordnance Factory, Fazakerley, the Royal Ordnance Factory, Maltby, and finally the Birmingham Small Arms Company an expedient wartime variation, the Lee-Enfield Rifle Number 4 Mark I* was built in Canada at the Long Branch Arsenal and in the United States of America, by Savage at Chicopee Falls, Massachusetts.
Many military firearms aficionados consider Rifle No. 4s (all makes and marks) to be the best bolt action rifles fielded during World War II.
This guide's diagrams are clear and informative. Copiously illustrated, phantom drawings of the various models of Lee-Enfield SMLE and the Pattern 14 Enfield show in great detail all assemblies and parts. Each part is identified by name and number.
