In this episode we take a look at an extremely rare rifle. A M1903 Springfield chambered in British .303 and adapted to mimic the Lee-Enfield Rifle No.4. Developed in late 1940 to provide the British with desperately needed rifles the project was eventually abandoned and only a handful of prototypes are believed to have been assembled!
