A rifel for big game was introduced in 1911 called the Lee Enfield Sportign Rifle No 2 pattern. based o the Lee Enfield Mark1* action, the rifle had a pistol grip sporting style stock with a thumb operated, shotgun style, safety catch button on top of the wrist of the stock. The stock and fore end were chequered and the fore end was fitted with a rose-wood tip. The rifle had a multi-leaf folding rearsight and bead foresight. Sling eyes were fitted to teh stock and barrel. The rifle had a detatchable 10-shot magazine with cut-off and was produced in .303, .315 (8mm) and .374 calibre.
A cheaper version of this rifle in .303 and .315 (8mm) calibres was built using unmodified Lee Enfield Mark 1* actions with cocking piece safety, military issue stocks and plain sportign fore ends made by "sporterising" military handguards. A five shot magazine was fitted. This model was advertised as the No.4 Sporting carbine.
