The British Occupation troops in Constantinople/Istanbul are armed with very rough and obvious mockups of the fully stocked .303 caliber Short Magazine Lee-Enfield rifles which were correct for their unit and period. "Giveaways" making the mockups obvious include: wrong bolt action; lack of the large charger bridge on the action; lack of the distinctive protective "ears" on the backsight; two fore-end bands where the real rifles had only one; incorrect buttstock; incorrect profile of the distinctive angled 10-round magazine which projects below the action on real SMLE rifles. Presumably mockups were necessary because armourers could not source sufficient stocks of the correct model of Lee-Enfield rifle in Turkey.
