The Enfield-Stuff  Fast Mark Finder  list of markings found on Lee-Enfield oil bottles/oilers has been updated.  The 100+ markings are (mostly) in alphabetical order.  The list is here:  https://enfield-stuff.com/Pages/3-oilers/3-1_fast_mark_finder_oilers.html" rel="nofollow - Enfield-Stuff Oiler Fast Mark Finder


If you have an oiler marking that is not on the list, I would very much like to hear from you.


A list of oiler markings organized by country is here:  https://enfield-stuff.com/Pages/3-oilers.html" rel="nofollow -

If you know nothing about Lee-Enfield oilers/oil bottles, start here:  https://enfield-stuff.com/Pages/3-oilers/3-2_field_guide.html" rel="nofollow - Enfield-Stuff Field Guide to Lee-Enfield Oilers


If you have a new or unknown mark, I would very much like to hear from you.

Thanks for posting. I'll have to have a look at my oiler's .
I also have a butt disc that I want to identify so maybe your site can help with that too.

UPDATE 2021-02-09

Nigel Utting (Bailiwick of Jersey, Channel Islands, British Isles) has been busy.  First, he picked up an ultra-rare, never-before-reported, Nobel Explosives Company marked oiler (SEE Oilers: England   https://enfield-stuff.com/Pages/3-oilers/3-3-3_makers_ENG-2.html" rel="nofollow - https://enfield-stuff.com/Pages/3-oilers/3-3-3_makers_ENG-2.html  ); shortly thereafter he unearthed some rare South African Small Arms Committee minutes of Jan 1942 and June 1942 that outline orders placed and received for oilers from AECO – a documented link to “Associated Engs” – as well as several other previously unknown South African manufacturers of oilers.  (See Oilers: South Africa  https://enfield-stuff.com/Pages/3-oilers/3-3-6_makers_ZAR.html" rel="nofollow - https://enfield-stuff.com/Pages/3-oilers/3-3-6_makers_ZAR.html )  Thank you, Nigel!!

Thank you, FlightRN/GunBoards (USA) for the picture of the previously unreported Afghan Type 04 oiler.  (See Oilers: Afghanistan  https://enfield-stuff.com/Pages/3-oilers/3-3-8_makers_AFG.html" rel="nofollow - https://enfield-stuff.com/Pages/3-oilers/3-3-8_makers_AFG.html ). 

If you have an oiler with a mark that isn't listed, I'd love to hear from you.

Thanks for the picture, BearTrapper999.

The bottom of the oiler is rounded, so it's a Mk III.

The WD (War Department) and Broad Arrow are British government markings.

And the Crown/Number/italic B are an inspection stamp from the Birmingham Small Arms Company.

Mk III oilers are a bit scarce, so it's definitely a keeper.
