he!!o, I'm new to the forum.

I purchased a couple Enfield rifles recently.  I was hoping someone could help me identify the guns.  They have import markings indicating No. 1 Mk I.  I cannot find much information when I search using that criteria.
 
Attached are pictures of the right side of the wrist band (if you call it that) as well as a full length view of each rifle.
 
I am new to the forum and looking forward to the opportunity.

Welcome Smile

Are there any markings on the left side of the butt socket (correct name for the wrist band)?

Your rifles appear (to me, anyhow) to be CLLEs, or Charger Loading Lee-Enfields.

The bolts appear to have been replaced, although I'm a bit curious to see the left side of the receiver, if possible.

Sorry to tell you this, your rifles are both fabrications & are both unlikely to be suitable for firing, search the forums for "Khyper pass"

I thought they looked khyber-esque. If they are unsafe to fire you can probably make some of that money back by parting them out, or keep them as cool wall hangers.

I appreciate the feedback.  I felt there was something wrong but could not find enough information to draw any conclusions.
 
Actually, I think it is very interesting once I looked through the link provided by 5thbatt and comments by Longbow14.
 
I only have $150 invested so they will be good conversation pieces.
 
Any other input will be appreciated.

Welcome to the forum. The are kinda neat in their own right. The price you paid absolutely confirms Khyber Pass Guns. Real Enfields of that vintage are in the $1000+ range in the U.S.

SW28fan,
Thanks for the additional comments.  I appreciate your welcome to the forum.  I have other Enfields (No1 Mk4, No4 Mk1 and a No5 Mk1) and these Khyber Pass copies will complement the group with their origin. 
By the way, I lived in Iraan, Tx for 4 years and in Houston for 1 year back in the mid 80's.  Enjoyed West Texas ......  Houston was a little big.

Got a Buddy in Houston, hate when he wants me to visit him...cant stand driving in a large city !!!! Leave me out in the Swamp !!!  
I almost bought a Kyber pass Rifle some time ago , I could not give them the price they were asking , and I was getting the wholesale price!!!  Century Arms has a way of giving the retailer very good deals !!!  Like charging you more wholesale than Cheaper than Dirt is selling the same item!!!!


If some one Come visit and bring beer Im all game !!!! But traveling to the City is for the birds in my book!!!
