The Lee-Enfield No. 4 (T) represents possibly the most sought-after, and certainly the most-accurate, of the already much-lauded Lee-Enfield No. 4 line of rifles. Converted into No. 4 (T)s from the most accurate No. 4s to roll off the Enfield factory line, the No. 4 (T) served as Britain's trustworthy sniper rifle, in one configuration or another, through WWII and into the Cold War. For more on this storied sniper's tool, check out this "I Have This Old Gun" segment from a recent episode of American Rifleman TV.
