    I just received a Lee Enfield #1 MK III SMLE .303 cal circa 1918. Rifle has
    been modified with a Lyman peep sight and was tapped/drilled for scope.
    I talked with owner to find out she did not know since it was her late husband's rifle. Any ideas what was attached to the receiver?

    looks like its had a couple of goes ( for the old offset sight mount ) with the different sized holes but the 3 same sized holes should take this


    available here MOUNTS.htm

    and i'll state that i am associated with the place .. i've been mates with the owner for 20+ years

    sorry for posting the wrong model before ... right one now

    Looks like somebody tried to drill/tap for a side-mount scope. Badly.
