Name that muzzle!

I've been thinking about a little game I can do on this blog, in which I take an image of a rifle's muzzle, and folks can hazard guesses as to the make of the entire rifle. Since I have oodles of rifles to do this with, it can become a regular feature. As I take them out of their respective safes to clean and oil them on a regular basis, I'll just take a snapshot and let fly. So, without further ado, here's Mystery Muzzle #1:

Lee Enfield SMLE MK3.

One of my all time favs

No. 1 Mk3 that is.

SMLE. Definitely not a 2A or 2A1 -- front sight wings on those are squared.

Wish I had a bayonet like that for mine.

Yup. 1917 RSAF Enfield NoIMkIII* SMLE. SMLE plus M1907 bayonet makes for an impressive skitch factor!
