RWA Lee Enfield No.4 Mk1 Sniper

Just finished modifying my RWA lee enfield to convert into Mk1 Sniper. Added the NO.32 MK II/MK 2 sniper scope and mount from RSM reproductions, as well as the wallnut cheekpiece from Numerich gunparts and reelsteel buttplate. Still waiting for the real steel upper handguard as will as front and rear barrel bands to arrive. She is a thing of beauty.

Yeah, its great! Too bad the gun has such huge design flaws though... but Viva Arms, the OEM that made the RWA Enfield, is working on a new Mk.4 and a SMLE of their own. Maybe they will learn from this one and release a better model. I can't wait for a fieldable no-nonsense SMLE.

G&G's might be nice if they offer CO2 mags for it.

How could they offer CO2 mags? The clip is so small. I was forgetting about the G&G... Hope they make a SMLE. But I would prefer a springer, hence the hope that Viva Arms fixes the problems of the RWA version.

I dont think CO2 would be a problem if the CO2 were contained within the bolt of the rifle. Really it would not be difficult to do i think, much along the line of the APS rifles and shotguns. A shell ejecting model would be fantastic.

At that point you might as well make a springer. It will be a lot more reliable and the power output will be a lot more stable, making a much more accurate and gameable rifle.

I know that G&G uses 8g CO2 in their other bolt-action offerings. A little bit unorthodox, but it's not like you're gonna shoot a whole bunch with a gun like that anyways. (The main reason I want a gas gun is since I'm a dirty lefty. Reaching over the gun is awkward enough, and having to cock a spring makes that tougher.)

And why not use propane? Its much cheaper and much less hassle... And since its not a blowback gun it will even work in the cold. I think G&G is on the right path with their gas in clip system. The other option would be gas in mag like iron airsoft did, it would probably work well too but very few soldiers carried actual magazines instead of ammo clips.

I do suppose you're right about a bolt gun having way less cooldown than a selfloader. I just like CO2 for being *more* stable, but then again, when you're gonna be under 100 rpm the gas should be stable no matter what. Although, I hope they find a way to fit 10 shots. 7 in a Lee is sacrilege.

As for Oberst, how's the scope? Would you say that it's a good repro? And how tough was getting the mount tapped?

The scope is the only reproduction on the market used by real steel owners who wanted an original mk2 scope for their enfields. It is absolutely correct in every respect. Check out the website http://www.rsmscope.com

As for mounting it, tapping was not so difficult as you set the full mount and scope on the rifle, mark your drill points very carefully and away you go. It was an all day project as you have to fully disassemble the rifle to extract the bolt. Not a big deal, then you just drill your mount holes, tap them and reassemble.

Update, the bayonets lugs were 1mm to large to accept the MkII spike bayonet. After very careful dremmeling and reblueing, the rifle now accepts the spike bayonet perfectly. Just awaiting a new upper rear grooved handguard and new front and rear barrel bands.

More pics to follow
