Have you met brand ambassador, @amber_christy ?? If not, take this opportunity to admire the 22 Too Many Hoodie she’s wearing on this blazing hot July evening.
One last rifle before I hit the road!
This is an Australian Experimental Lee-Enfield No. 6 Mk I/I carbine in .303 British. The rifle was manufactured at SAF Lithgow in 1945 and was the Australian answer to the British No. 5 Mk I “Jungle Carbine”.
The eagle-eyed among you will note this rifle is built off a modified Mk III SMLE receiver. As the Australians never received the tooling from the British to manufacture the No. 4/No. 5 series, they, in true Australian fashion, improvised.
Two major variants of the No. 6 were built up for trials. The No. 6 Mk I utilized the traditional barrel-mounted tangent sights. 98 Mk I’s were produced with half equipped with rubber butt pads and half with brass butt plates.
The No 6 Mk I/I used an entirely new receiver casting, allowing the fitting of an aperture sight at the rear of the receiver in the style of the Mk V SMLE. 96 Mk I/I’s were produced, again, evenly divided between the two styles of butt. The final rifle was delivered in August, 1945.
With the war over, the Australian List of Changes simultaneously announced the introduction of the No. 6 and it’s obsolescence. The No. 1 Mk III* would soldier on as Australia’s service rifle until introduction of the L1A1 in 1959. 🇦🇺
