Lee Enfield (7/21)

List item
Approved

The Lee Enfield rifle in .303 and its many variants served as the standard issue rifle of the British Army for around half a century. They were most notably used throughout the First and Second World Wars, in both rifle and carbine variations. The big advantage of the Lee Enfield over its competitors such as the Mauser K98 or the Mosin Nagant was the fact that it held ten rounds of ammunition at once, whereas most bolt action rifles of the time held just five rounds of ammo. The Lee Enfield was eventually replaced by the FN FAL as the primary service rifle of the British (technically they used a version called the Enfield L1A1), but the Lee Enfield can be found around the world today.
