Enfield SMLE No.1 MK.III Drill Rifle with Original Grenade Launcher

Step into the annals of military history with the Enfield SMLE No.1 MK.III Drill Rifle, an iconic piece of British and Commonwealth heritage. This non-firing, drill-purpose rifle is not only a collector's dream but also comes with a standout addition – the Original Grenade Launcher, a collector's item valued at $100 on its own.

Key Features:

  • Historic Ishapore Manufacturing: This original #1 MKIII Ishapore-manufactured surplus DP rifle brings with it stories of rigorous training and military prowess.
  • Intact Original Features: Featuring a 25.5″ barrel, graduated rear sight, and a robust hardwood stock.
  • Display Ready: While the black finish is worn in several areas, showcasing its authentic age and use, and there may be spots of corrosion, this only adds to the character of this historic piece.
  • Collector's Note: Please be aware that due to its storied past, the stock may show cracks or repairs, and there might be missing small parts, such as bands or the rear upper handguard, (etc.)

Condition and Legality:

  • Good Condition: Sold in "Fair" condition, indicative of its history and journey, with a well-worn finish and potential spots of corrosion.
  • Deactivated Status: As a deactivated DP (Drill Purpose) rifle, it has been rendered inoperable for safety and preservation – a clear indication of its training use past, with visible DP stamps on parts.
  • Legal Compliance: This item is still classified as a firearm and therefore requires processing through an FFL. It is also C&R eligible.

Purchase Information:

  • FREE Shipping: We offer free shipping to send this piece of history to your collection.
  • No Returns: Please note that this unique item is sold AS-IS with no returns. It reflects decades of storage and significant wear, contributing to its authenticity and narrative.

Special Highlight:

    Enfield SMLE Drill Rifle w/Grenade launcher

    Posted by John Thompson on Mar 9th 2024

    I bought this item to add to the collection. I was surprised to receive mine intact with a few missing minor parts. Overall, I like the item and would order another if it ever becomes available again.

    Received this rifle and the grenade cup was dirty but in excellent condition. I took the rifle apart to clean the grease off and the wood fell apart. The butt stock was in good shape but the top and bottom fore end was broken in a few pieces. The bluing was in decent shape and the only parts missing were the mag follower and spring. I'll try to repair the wood and make a wall hanger out of it.

    Enfield with grenade cup launcher

    Posted by Pat Mc on Feb 13th 2024

    Overall, I am very happy with the condition of the Enfield No 1 and the launcher cup. The rifle is from Ishapore dated 1959 with all matching serial numbers except for the bolt. The metal bluing was in good condition and the wood stock had been repaired a few times but the entire rifle cleaned up well. Your buying a piece of history and it is a fun project to clean up and add your collection.

    Drill Rifle w/grenade launcher

    Posted by Justin on Feb 12th 2024

    Rifle looks decent and as expected, missing about the same amount of parts as the advertised picture. The grenade launcher was the biggest disappointment, as it was missing the gas adjustment door and thumbscrew. I was expecting the rifle to be missing parts, but not the launcher as well.

    Fairly good deal for the price

    Posted by Randall Reinke on Feb 8th 2024

    Receive this rifle in a timely manner and overall am mostly happy with it except for the fact it was missing more parts than I was expecting... Description said maybe missing some small parts and rear upper hand guard, the entire safety mechanism, the magazine follower and spring, the forward sling swivel, and part of the adjuster for the rear sight... What I am happy about is the wood and metal are in better condition than I was expecting and also the bolt and firing pin have not been been modified like on some drill rifles so this one will function... Also the bore looks shiny and new... Being as I am a machinist and a gunsmith I plan to remove the pin that's welded in the chamber and weld the holes closed so the rifle will be functional... I did complain about the amount of parts missing and was lucky enough to get a $50 refund... Also the grenade launcher is an interesting piece and a big part of the reason why I ordered this rifle in the first place... In all I am happy with the purchase after receiving the $50 refund... I have ordered many firearms, parts, and accessories from centerfire over the years and have mostly been happy with everything I've received..

    Enfield No.1 Mk3 drill rifle w/grenade launcher

    Very good value for the money. Grenade Launcher was a big plus. It was missing both upper handguards. After cleanup, it is an impressive wall hanger.

    Incredible value

    Posted by Phil C on Jan 20th 2024

    These grenade cups alone are nearly $100 at other sites and you’re getting a massive trove of excellent parts. Mine had a complete bolt and all the wood but the small handguard. The magazine was complete. Could probably make back the purchase in 3-4 smaller parts on eBay. Centerfire comes through again. Oh, and everyone wish Lois a happy retirement!!!!
