    VIDEO: How to Remove a Lee Enfield Bolt

    The Lee Enfield's bolt is held in place in a rather interesting way and there are a couple tricks to getting it out of the rifle. When I purchased my LE there were four or five guys huddled around it trying to figure it out. One guy was trying to remember...finally...another guy came up and showed us all how it was done.

    I made this video to help somebody trying this for the first time.

    Hey, good job, that's a nice video. One question, which I also posted on the video site. The header says MK VI but in the video you call it a MK IV. Which is it, and does it matter? Are the procedures different for the various models?

    Whoops, thanks for pointing that out, just fixed it.

    I'm not familiar with every model LE, so can't answer your question. Sure somebody else reading this may be able to.

    Yeah, it would be a chore to determine how to effect bolt removal intuitively. Good idea to put up a video.

    As far as I know all the British variants of the rifle designed by James Paris Lee utilized the same method for bolt removal, at least the ones commonly encountered do. Those would be the No. 1 Mark III and variants, No 4 Mark I and variants, and No 4 Mark II. I can't say for certain about the original Lee Metford introduced in 1888 but seems it's also the same.

    Here's a YouTube video on the original article, a Lee Metford. While it may be seen that the basic action design is the same, the fellow doesn't go into how to remove the bolt.
