Description
Open to swap offers...... particularly early Lithgow SMLE bits and pieces. WIll swap for 2 Lithgow SMLES.

Very hard to find, mounting Bases for an SMLE No1 Mk.III*HT Sniper.


Please note: this is for the mount bases only, scope and rings are not included. These bases are soldered and screwed onto the rifle to allow the Pattern 1918 Scope and rings to be fitted to the rifle.



I bought the bases with a scope and rings and put the scope and rings on my original Lithgow Sniper rifle that was missing its scope. You often see the scopes for sale but the original mount bases are the hard to find item.


The bases are in excellent condition and the blue is 95%+. The bases have the serial number 1943 stamps on them, this is not the year of manufacture. I have tried mounts on a Pattern 1918 scope and they fit perfectly.The bases have no traces of solder so it is unlikely that they have ever been fitted to a rifle.


You can use these mounts to build your own Lithgow sniper. By adding a heavy barrelled Lithgow No.1 MkIII* rifle and five butt trap screws, this base set will allow you to fit a Pattern 1918 scope to make a Lithgow sniper for far less than the current asking price of $6000+.

For more detail see"The Lee Enfield Story" p319 By Ian Skennerton.
