When it comes to military firearms, the United Kingdom does not exactly stand out as the biggest innovator. They do however, lay claim to a pretty famous, pretty popular service rifle in the Lee-Enfield.
The unique Lee-Enfield, a bolt-action, magazine-fed repeating rifle, was developed in the late 19th century as a redesign of its predecessor, the Lee-Metford. While I would love to tell you all about it, its storied history is much too detailed for this short description. It is worth mentioning, however, that its name stems from the designer of its bolt system, James Paris Lee, and the factory in which it was designed, the Royal Small Arms Factory in Enfield. Moreover, it served as the British army's standard rifle from the date of its adoption in 1895 through 1957. Oh, and if you happen to own one, then you are going to want an original sling to go along with it – that is where Keepshooting.com comes in.
