My First Lee Enfield, 1917 BSA Mk III

Today's purchase, my first ever Lee Enfield, was bittersweet in that it is my final firearms acquisition before my reassignment to Korea. I'll give her a good cleaning (she needs it) and also apply the same long-term storage gun grease before I sock it away in storage, along with the rest of my lovelies, until I return in two years. I have 80 rounds of British .303 but I won't have an opportunity to put any rounds through this magnificent rifle prior to my report date. All good things come to those who wait.

It's a 1917 BSA Mark III SMLE. It's in pretty good shape, put it on layaway at my local Cabela's a couple months ago and picked it up today.
