Lee Enfield No8 Mk1 Trainer
Serial No A8192
Matching Serial Numbers in Very Good Condition
This example retains some of its Suncorite finish, and has a excellent bore.
There were two action styles, one is very similar to the No5 & the second based on a standard No4 Action.
This version is based on the No5 style of action. Both were purpose built as the No8.
The rear sight is correct and has the Harmonised “H” setting when used with the Land Scape Targets.
Whilst BSA designed and manufactured the No.8 rifle at the Shirley factory on the outskirts of Birmingham, mostly for a New Zealand Contract, a significant number, probably the greater, of rifles were produced at Fazakerley, the Royal Ordnance Factory in Lancashire.
Matching serial numbers on the Bolt, Action & Fore-end. The original rubber butt pad is still in excellent condition
