Winchester Pattern 1914 Enfield


The Enfield Rifle No 3 (Pattern 1914) was a British bolt action rifle developed between 1912 and 1914, and produced from 1915 to 1917, as a potential replacement for the Lee Enfield rifle. It uses a Mauser-type action and was originally designed in .276 Enfield rimless caliber, but was produced in .303 caliber taking a five-round magazine, under license by Remington and Winchester in the USA. Following the Great War the British army's rifles were put in store and during the Second World War issued to Home Guard units.
