NRA Institute for Legislative Action today!

These rifles are non-firing and should be used for display only. Due to ATF regulations they must be shipped and transferred thru an FFL dealer.

For a limited time, Century Arms and Bud’s Gun Shop are proud to offer you the chance to own an authentic Short Magazine Lee-Enfield Number 1 Mark III rifle (SMLE). Considered the finest infantry rifle of its time, the SMLE covered the globe, literally. Originally, these service guns were used by many in World War I. These retired war horses, marked DP for “Drill Purposes,” went on to render additional services by being used in schools and academies for training and drill practice.

No two SMLE rifles are exactly alike so you will truly own a one-of-a-kind piece of history.

100% of the purchase price of $249.99 goes to support NRA-ILA and the future of freedom.

With this very generous donation from Century Arms, Buds is pleased to help the NRA  raise $500,000 by selling 2000 of these guns.

Don’t miss this chance to help protect your firearm freedom today.

This rifle is pretty rough, but it will look good with some work. They are advertised in American Rifleman Magazine as a piece of World War one history, but most were made long after the war. Still, for the money, it is a good wall hanger. My grandson and I will have fun restoring it.

Purchasing this Lee Enfield Ishapore Number 1 Mark III rifle for NRA Institute for Legislative Action fund raiser and membership to NRA for one year is a great reward. The piece came in non-functional condition and needed attention for show (at least) until at some point I fully recondition it. Just having my hands on it feels real good. I picked exactly the serial number I wanted and that's what came. I could not be more pleased with Bud's!!! I have visited Bud's often and this is my first purchase (perhaps not my last).

Well, as far as "taking home a piece of firearm history", that's subjective at best, depending on one's definition of 'history'. These definitely look like something that has been around since the early 1900's, but mine has a date stamp of 1959, so it's more just a case of poor upkeep and maintenance. So, vintage, yes. Antique, unfortunately no. (unless I just received the latest year in the batch) ;-). Don't get me wrong, it's still a great piece, regardless, and it will be proudly displayed on my wall. But, judging from the condition in the pictures, I was hoping for something a little...older. Is it worth the $250 price tag? Absolutely! I've seen much worse in the $400 price range, so this is still a good deal. Just take it for what it is - a used and deactivated military surplus rifle (probably from the 50's or later). Not a pre or WWI/WWII piece.

It did arrive coated in cosmoline as expected, but was easily cleaned up. All mechanical actions worked well and there were no broken parts. The painted regiment stripes and letters add an interesting flare to the piece. The stamp marks are unlike any I can find in any reference books, which is common with the Indian models. So, trying to find any information will be difficult. Hopefully you will have better luck tracing the history of yours.

    Erick, the stocks are the same so I would wager it will fit. Cheers and stay safe!

    Joedel, yes but, since it is serialized and not a parts kit, it will be registered as Non Functional by the ATF and any attempt to make functional would be a Felony. Cheers and stay safe!

    bucause it has a serial number and the action could be converted into a firing gun (lot of gunsmith work but can be done)

    FPC and GOA are the way to go. The NRA well they have me for 2 more months. I’m not going to rejoin unless they prove themselves worthy. These are nice rifles to display if you have a man cave or may look nice over a fireplace.
