In the early stages of WWII both Canada and the US produced The #4 mark 1* Lee Enfield rifles. Since the US had not entered the war yet, the US rifles were essentially sold to the British under a guise called the "Lend Lease" program. The Savage-Stevens rifles have U.S. PROPERTY stamped on the left side of the receiver, along with the Ordnance Department’s “Flaming Bomb” acceptance stamp. Early rifles were equipped with the ladder type of adjustable rear sight, but these were soon replaced by the less complicated MK2, “L” style sight that could be flipped for a range of 300 or 600 yards. Over 1,000,000 were made and they are excellent rifles and treasured by Enfield collectors. Long Branch, the Canadian Company, produced over 900,000 of the rifles and a number of them were shipped to New Zealand and remained in War Reserves and essentially were never used and are still in as new condition. All Enfields except for the .22 trainers, shoot the .303 British cartridge.
