Either completely manufactured or refurbished at Rifle Factory Ishapore in India, these rifles were retired from service and all major parts stamped with "DP" (Drill Purpose). 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 or simply look great as a wall hanger.
Most of these we have seen have either a painted white band around the stock or no paint at all.
*UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHOULD ANY ATTEMPT BE MADE TO FIRE THESE RIFLES AS DOING SO COULD RESULT IN SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH.*
