Reflectors, mirror, S.A. (Small Arms), .303-inch-Adaptor, Mark I, Type 2. This reflector, with adaptor (folding handle), was officially approved for general use with all .303 inch arms. Introduced c. December 1915. Bore viewers/reflectors were used to visually inspect the interior of a rifle barrel. This type 2 is beautifully constructed in solid brass, with a glass reflector mirror set at 45 degrees. It is protected with a brass outer case attached via a brass chain. A folding hinged brass handle allows the mirror to be easily positioned in the breach of the rifle. The viewer measures approximately 2"/5cm in length with a 3"/7cm handle and 5.5"/14cm long chain. Close to the hinge are the stamps 'EFD' (Enfield) and the letter 'A'. The handle loop is stamped with a War Department broad arrow. This reflector closely matches the description in the 1915 'List of Changes' for all .303 arms, including Canada's Ross Rifle. Excellent condition with a lovely unpolished patina. Stock code M25885.
