I inherited it from my father when he died. He got the Short Lee Enfield MKIII from Bigtown Discount store in a now gone shopping center in North Ridgeville, OH when I was about 10, 1966. Still packed like a mummy and swathed in cosmoline. I have a couple boxes of ammo for it too that he'd purchased a long time ago. It's one of the military rifles I learned to shoot with at that time. Gun safety and all the things the Navy taught him before shipping him off to the Philippines as a Seabee, 111th special Battalion. It was built in Lithgow for the Australian army, 1918. It's FTR was in 1953 before being wrapped and greased up then placed in a long crate with many others. That bolt action is still smooth as butter. The barrel is in very good condition. I remember shooting it in PA. You could shoot a deer with it at 100yds or more and stick your finger in where it entered. Then stick your head in and wiggle your ears where it exited! To me, it's basically a British 30-06.
