Question for the list.
I have an old Lee Enfield rifle here at home, and I can‘t find thatr
version no where,
I mean it is a no 4 Mark 1, but the stock is not full compared to the
other version,
It look similar to the Jungle Carbine in appearance.
Also it say US property, year 1942 on it, did the Enfield produced
different rifle for the US
because I searched books, net etc... and I can‘t find anything similar.

There was a "jungle carbine" version produced. It might have been sold to
the US as an expedient.

Is it in original condition? I have seen Lee-Enfields that have had the
original stocks replaced with "sporterized" ones. I‘ve also seen ads in the
firearms magazines for assorted replacement stocks. My Dad actually has
one...... "speak up, other MacFarlane".....
Just a thought.

There were several "sport" modification kits available for the Lee enfield,
perhaps you have one of them

I worked in Sears sporting goods in 1963-4 in Hamilton and they had a
gun section. We sold that type of rifle. It was not the jungle barrel
but had the short forestock you mention. They were dirt cheap, probably
in the neighbourhood of $20.00. Now, the regimental museums are hard
pressed to find them in their original condition. We have just attained
another one but it has been chromed, had been used in the colour party
of the 1st Bn Vets. Now everyone is too old to carry them in a parade.
Most of the vets are in their early eighties.

I dont know, my cousin has one, built in 1917, plus he had one same rifle
except on the barrel the mention nitro was on it.
Might be might not, but I have to say that version look better than the full
stock :

I‘m not sure what it would be. If you scan it, I‘ll have my weapons techs
take a look and see if they can identify it for you.
