Either completely manufactured or refurbished at Rifle Factory Ishapore in India, these rifles were retired from service and deactivated by drilling a hole through the chamber and barrel. Additionally, the chambers of these rifles have now been plugged. These rifles were intended for Drill use or as a training aid in familiarization and operation of the SMLE rifle. These rifles are a great source of parts and simply look great as a wall hanger. Although completely deactivated, these are still considered by BATF as firearms and must go to a licensed dealer or C&R holder.
*UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHOULD ANY ATTEMPT BE MADE TO FIRE OR CONVERT THESE RIFLES INTO A FUNCTIONING FIREARM AS DOING SO COULD RESULT IN SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH.*
