Swift Training Rifle 9B/1508 series B

This is not actually a firearm but was designed in WWII as an instructional tool to teach handling, holding, aiming and firing, without the need of amunition or range. The B series model was broadly representative of the P14 or Lee Enfield Mk. III service rifles. From 1942 these rifles were issued to the RAF and Home Guard and post war were used for rifle training by the ATC. This example is AID marked so was clearly used by the RAF. While we cannot guarantee the accuracy(!), it does appear to be in working order and comes complete with photocopy documentation issued by the manufacturer Frederick J. Minns of Oxford. A most unusual item for the specialist RAF or firearms collector. Measures 47" (119cm)
