  • Description: Serial #3752A, .303 British, 21” barrel with a fine, bright bore that has some mild freckling within the grooves. This is an 1899 dated carbine by Enfield that has about 70-75% of the original blue remaining with silvering along the exposed edges and projections, as well as plum-brown fading along the balance of the metal. The bolt is numbered to the gun, and has quite a lot of original blue remaining on the dust cover. The stock, forend, and handguard have numerous small handling marks and blemishes in the added military oil finish, with still clear Enfield and model markings stamped into the right side. The stock disk has deeply struck inventory markings: “R.DEP”; possibly denoting either a Replacement, or Reserve Depot. A single correct magazine and cleaning rod are included, as well as a modern reproduction leather rear sight cover, and the carbine rates very good plus-fine condition overall. FFL or C&R
