Long Lee Enfield Rifle
Enfield Guns is a leading source for long Lee Enfield rifles. The history of the Lee Enfield rifle stretches back to the late 19th century, when the British Army started to use the Lee-Metford. The Lee-Metford rifle soon proved to be problematic due to the amount of heat and pressure it was producing, which damaged the barrel’s rifling. To overcome this problem a new square-shaped wear-resistant rifling system was introduced. The first Lee Enfield rifles fused the bolt-action of the Lee-Metford with the Enfield barrel. The rifle was also known as the Magazine Lee-Enfield and the “Long Lee” because of the length of the barrel.
