The British Army first started to use the Lee-Metford in the late 19th century. However, problems with heat and pressure damaging the barrel’s rifling meant alternatives had to be developed. Soon later, a new square-shaped wear-resistant rifling system was introduced, with the Lee Enfield rifles combining the Enfield barrel with the Lee-Metford’s bolt-action. The new rifle was also called the Magazine Lee-Enfield as well as the “Long Lee” because of the barrel length.
