The Legendary Lee Enfield Rifle is a bolt action, magazine fed rifle that has served the British Empire and its Commonwealth during the first half of the 20th century, and the British Army has adopted different variants of this gun from 1895 to 1957. The L42A1 variant was made as a designated sniper rifle after the British military adopted the NATO standard ammunition of the famous 7.62x51mm NATO, it was adopted during the 1970s and was only phased out in 1993 by the Accuracy International's L96 rifles.
The ARES L42A1 Spring Sniper Rifle is faithful replica of this designated sniper rifle. Not only that the gun's metal parts are 95% made of stainless steel, it also has a really nice High-quality wood stock giving it a very rugged feel. Much like the real steel gun, the ARES L42A1 also features a smooth action, something this gun was well known for. This particular version features a scope right from the factory, just like the real one.
Unlike most ARES spring bolt action guns, the L42A1 features a direct BB feeding system, similar to the Amoeba STRIKER series to make even the internal action much more realistic. The gun comes with a 35 BB magazine, and the whole package will come neatly in a hard plastic gun case. If you are looking for a rifle for Cold War British reenactments, cosplay or even a really nice wall hanger, this model is the perfect rifle to do so.
