I wonder if any of the esteemed members can help me.
I got a Lee Enfield Rifle manufactured by BSA&M.Co, dated 1894 which sadly had been rendered unable to shoot.
The trigger mechanism has been welded unmoveable and two holes were drilled into the top of the barrel.
This Rifle would serve only as a decorative memorabilia.
Could anyone please give me an approx. value?
Thanks and much appreciated

It is quite deplorable the things people will do to a venerable relic in these days of PC. Looks like someone has done a fair job of moving the frontsight back - and that is about all. The rifle might be useful for someone who might need certain parts; like the butt or the backsight leaf.
Otherwise, all I can sadly say is - here in OZ - "very little if any value".

Timon, What you have appears to be a South African cadet carbine. These were cut down Magazine Lee Enfields. During the 1950s they were mostly in an operable condition, but without magazines. They were deactivated in the early 1960s and remained in use for about 20 years thereafter. They are still sometimes to be found for sale on flea markets.
