Lee-Enfield Ishapore Shtle III


Up for grabs is a Lee-Enfield Ishapore Shtle III bolt-action rifle in .303 British. Serial number- 94402. This rifle looks to have been manufactured in India in the year 1939.

While it is true that the British government adopted the No. 4 Rifle in the late 1930s, production of the No. 1 Rifle continued, with more than 250,000 of them being produced during WWII by the BSA Co. factory at Shirley. In addition, the Ishapore factory in India manufactured more than 600,000 No. 1 Rifles during WWII, while the Lithgow factory in Australia produced more than 500,000 No. 1 Rifles between 1939 and 1945.
