    Default The Best Bolt Action Rifle of WWII VIDEO

    I've fired and used a lot of bolt action military surplus rifles, but above them all, and I mean, way, way, way above them all, is the Lee-Enfield rifle. Why do I say that? Four reasons:

    1. Rugged and heavy, helps mitigate recoil tremendously.
    2. Fantastic stock trigger, better than any others.
    3. Large capacity magazine, ten rounds.
    4. Incredibly fast and smooth bolt cycling.
    5. And, finally, the sights: just incredibly good!


    Here is the video I've been wanting to put together and finally got around to it, first, a close look at the Lee-Enfield I own, a No. 4, Mk1* and then following that close look and background on the Lee-Enfield, shooting and function demonstrations from the gun club:

    I have had several of those. Back in the 50s you could order them through the mail for $10 or $15. I ordered several. But, as the years rolled by I traded them away until now I have none. I do have an Ishapore .308 though. I think it is going to be a worthwhile addition to my collection. As for my "collection," everything I buy is for shooting. I don't want any wall-hangers. If it doesn't go "bang!" I don't want it. I do like the Enfields. Maybe another will come my way someday.

    The joke was Italian bolt 6.5's never fired, dropped once cheap!
