Description

Enfield No 1 MK 3 C Grade Rifles, Caliber .303 British

We just received a new shipment of No 1 Mk 3 rifles from Ethiopia in C Grade Condition. This particular batch of Enfields have shortened stocks at the front. The foreend of the stocks are generally shortened around 6-14 inches, please take a look at the photos above to see some examples of the shortened wood front end of the rifles (similar to how some Enfields were “sporterized” post war by civilians). The barrels are NOT cut down on these rifles, so you could get new furniture and restore these rifles back to their former military configuration. The overall condition is generally fair, bores range from poor to good. The rifles may have cracks in the hand guard, forearm, and may have small cracks in the buttstock and/or a factory stock repair. These rifles generally do not have a front handguard as it was removed when the wood foreend was shortened, they usually have a rear handguard but a few of the rifles in this batch are missing the rear handguard. The bolt will be functional in the gun, however the bolt may have a missing extractor, extractor spring, and/or firing pin captive screw. Additionally, there may be some minor pitting and/or surface corrosion, most can be removed using steel wool and oil. Please note that the rifles may be missing a small parts such as a sling swivel, ejector, safety lever, etc. At this time we do not offer any hand select options on C Grade rifles, they are sold as is.

No Magazine included.

These Enfields are ideal for a restoration project, making this a great opportunity to purchase an Enfield rifle for a much lower price than standard. We have rifles from WW1 to WW2 available, with most being British, but also including Ishapore and Lithgow. The majority of these rifles are Mk3* configuration without a magazine cutoff, though there are some Mk3 in this batch. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

We sincerely appreciate your business.

  1. John T.

    I received a 1935 BSA rifle with all matching numbers that is in much better condition than I was expecting for a C grade. The rifle has a decent amount of original bluing left and what appears to be a good bore too! This will be a great shooter once I get it cleaned up and back into original military configuration with a replacement stock and nose cap. Thanks again!!

    I got a 1937 BSA today , a little surface Rust , very nice , I wanted a WW 2 era No 1 Mk III it has a Mag cut off , now I need a Stock to do it Justice , am very happy with what I received

  3. Edwin H.

    After more than ten C&R rifles this was, by far, my biggest RTI mistake yet. While the metal is consistent with other rifles received, the stock components are the worst seen yet with more missing parts that on anything else purchased. Pay the extra $10 and get the regular C Grade rifle.

    Buying a C grade rifle is like buying a lottery ticket. You could end up with a diamond in the rough or a lump of coal. I purchased three and one had a very poor bore (sewer pipe) and two were good with over 50%. There were other issues like a live round in the butt stock pointing up at me with a wood screw underneath the primer (i know that was done long before Royal Tiger got it). I kept pushing down trying to find the threads and lucky got a flashlight to look before injury. The rust was not bad on any and one bolt was cracked, but overall the transaction got a C. Getting a 1939 BSA with a nice bore and minimal rust was a treat. All the wood was bad except for the buttstocks on all three. Expect to spend at least 6 hours per gun and an extra $200, cleaning, repairing and assembling. If you have time to tinker and buy more than one, it is worth it.

    I PURCHASED ONE OF THESE SOME TIME AGO, WISHING TO RESTORE IT. THE BARREL ROTATES 15 DEGREES OR SO AND IS NOT SAFE AS IT IS. I HAVE NO IDEA IF IT CAN BE REPAIRED, WITHOUT DOING A REBARREL. ANY PERIOD BARREL I HAVE FOUND IS VERY EXPENSIVE. I WOULD NOT BUY ANOTHER ONE.

  6. Phillip R Priest (verified owner)

    I purchased a #1 Mk 3 Grade C Sporterized Enfield and received a 1918 BSA #1 Mk 3* in much better condition than expected. It is complete except for the cut off forend and the parts that went with that. Very happy with this rifle. Thanks RTI.
