    This is a 2nd MK2 Pattern Lee-Metford manufactured from 1888 for the British .303 service rifle.

    The blade is stamped on one side of the ricasso ‘9. 95’ (made in September 1895) and the other side bears a number of British proof marks and inspector’s marks and ‘15’ meaning that it was reissued for service in ‘1915’.

    The grips remain excellent.
