The labelling of the “wrongly stamped” Mk III sight should be better described as “confusingly stamped”.. the designation refers to the leaf…
It should be clarified that the rifle has at some point spent time in India with resultant modifications and maintenance…
Also, as of the 1937 Manual, the safety catch should be applied with the forefinger of the right hand.

Hi all, welcome to Britishmuzzleloaders… Don’t let the name deceive you!
This is an Historical Shooting Channel that features British and Empire Military Arms from the Victorian era (plus or minus, that is). The Baker Rifle, the Enfield, the Snider, the Martini Henry, the Lee-Metford and Lee Enfield. Eventually there will be the a Brown Bess too.
Although the Channel was stared with a focus on the Enfield Rifle-Musket (hence the name), it has grown in scope and I hope that it might be your source for all aspects of using and shooting these fine old firearms in a military context.
Thanks all for your comments and questions. I look forward to hearing from you.
