A WWII era Mark IV British Swift Training Rifle. Created to be used in training, these were made to be the same as the Lee Enfield Service Rifle in both shape and weight.

Fitted with a spring-loaded butt plate, the purpose of which was both to ensure the trainee had the rifle pulled firmly into their shoulder, and as a safety to prevent accidental discharge. If the butt-plate isn't pushed tight against the stock, it will not fire.

This would operate by firing needles out of the front when the trigger was pulled. By analysing the position and shape of the holes left by the needles when they were retracted, the instructor could see faults. For instance, an oval hole left in the target paper would indicate that the trainee was breathing while firing.

All in all a fantastic piece of collectible WWII kit!
