Lee Enfields new in 2010

There have been few rifles more attention getting than the Lee Enfield based  rifles from AIA in Australia. Concrete information has at times been hard to find, so here’s a picture and information profile from their web site in March 2010.

A quick summary of the differences between these and Lee Enfields is; caliber 7.62 NATO, a heavier and simplified receiver, teak wood work, hard chrome alloy barrels reputedly from a US military rotary gun. Owners report good accuracy and are happy with their rifles, although buyers report they can be difficult to locate in a retail outlet. The makers, located in Queensland, Australia, if they respond to emails, can steer buyers to stores that have them for sale. Overall a slightly pricey rifle whose quality and buyer satisfaction is rated high.

They are sometimes available,2011, at Lawrence Ordnance, Sydney, and Marstar, Canada.
