Everything needed to accurize a 20th century Lee Enfield, no matter if it’s a No1, No1 MK3, a No4 Mk1 or Mk2, an Ishapore 2a 7.62, and even the jungle carbine.
Strong on the practical and light on the theoretical, ‘Complete Accurizing’ is a friendly and thorough book that suits beginners and all home handy and innovative shooters.
Want to make a stock rifle as accurate as possible to compete in military type shoots that require no changes from as issued?
Want to make a dragon slaying, target chomping machine just for the hell of it?
Want to recreate a Lee Enfield sniper rifle and then make it shoot like one, or better?
Want to keep your Enfield all original and as accurate as it was intended to be?
Far from being a repeat of the most common ideas this book looks at how it was really done decades ago by the master shootists and gunsmiths, with well described photos backing up every interesting point. The text also includes ‘Old Timer tricks’, tips that hardly ever made it off the range and into the history books.
And then just to kick the ball another length there are 25 pages devoted to new ways to accurize an Enfield that have probably never been done before.
What about a carbon fiber barrel on your Lee Enfield, to line up next to the hi tech range rifles of today?
“What, say what?!”
Yep, carbon fiber barrel, no problem, and I bet that’s got you thinking. Perhaps a 1966 Ishapore 7.62 target that looks like this would get your attention?
You get; 200 plus pages of concrete information you can put into practice, with all the step by step directions to get you there. Engineering degrees and British accents are not required, just common sense and everyday man cave tools.
Every accurizing technique is demonstrated with photos, up close and in place on Lee Enfields, either stock, target rifles, new, old, vintage and home accurized. In addition, the barrel bedding methods are illustrated with actual case studies. Rifles with each barrel bedding technique are opened up, measured, photographed and where possible targets produced – two methods for each of the No1 Mk3, the No1 Mk3 H barrel and the No4 MK1 and Mk2, and in some cases there are three methods shown.
Accurizing techniques described here will pay as much careful attention to techniques that are mild to wild, as to the ones that allow you to get the most out of your totally stock rifle.
Who am I? A Hollywood writer and set designer until 2006, I grew up in New Zealand and have owned a rifle since 16. A friend turned me onto a smle in 1995, and I’ve been hooked on the great defender of empire ever since. I was lucky enough to live close to an 800 yard range and spent years knocking down steel plates on the weekends. Health changes spun things in new directions and I don’t shoot as much as I’d like these days, but I have a great man cave and am a born tinkerer. After discovering literature about accurizing the old .303 back in the Golden Era of target shooting and seeing it work on my own rifles, I was well and truly hooked on this part of Enfield history. I’ve spent the last 4 years entirely focused on investigating the old target rifles, and after many requests to put it down on paper, here we are, a work on Enfield accurizing as may not be for sale anywhere else.
A sample of unsolicited comments from happy buyers.
- ‘Book arrived today. Real Gem. Thank You’.
- ‘… very thorough and very educational.’
- ‘ … Very much enjoying the book.I am glad to see someone capturing/reviving the art of tuning Enfield rifles.‘… I’ve had a quick look at the ebook and it looks great.
- ‘You have written a very, very interesting book. I could say it’s the most comprehensive book about accurizing techniques among the entire Enfield world.
- ‘ Congratulations on an an excellent book. I will recommend it to some of my colleagues.’
- ” I have to say a great ‘Thanks’. Today I shot my 2nd Enfield No. 4. (Following your book) I did these things –New wood under main screws in contact with trigger guard with a soldered steel plate and bedding —Bedded both ends and grooves of trigger guard. —Created 7 pound upward pressure at the barrel tip. Fore end was warped so i opened up a little and made good contact with some bedding compound —Patched the draws and bedded with devcon to have a more strong contact. —Filled with bedding compound 0.4mm gap between fore end and butt stock. Now my rifle shoots 1 MOA with consistency. Its a dream. Many many thanks.’
- “ … congratulations and well done on the publication of your book. It is by far the most concise and encompassing publication dealing with the subject of accurising the Lee Enfield rifle yet. I am impressed both with the style it’s written and supporting diagrams and pictures. I like the format, It’s informative and very clever, again well done. As an aside, It’s caused more than a few rifles in my collection to be dusted off for potential projects! But what is really neat is because of your book, we may now hopefully see more of the old girls given a new lease of life and on the firing lines.” M.B.
- March 29 2014; ‘Hello RJW, I have been through the online download and just received your book. Ive been shooting these things since 1962- competitively since 1992 and I have never had such a comprehensive, well-explained, clearly illustrated resource such as this. An absolutely brilliant production – superb! All the best, D.M. Australia
The compliments are great to hear, and they keep coming too, but I’ve really put them up so that you can get a feel for the satisfaction fellow shooters are finding in the book.

“My aim in writing the book has been to not only round up some of the spread wide, often casually mentioned, accurizing information about Lee Enfields but it is also to encourage ways of looking at your rifle that will get you thinking afresh. The old masters were very in tune with their rifles, and that’s a great connection for us to re discover”.
