  • Lee - Speed

    Here is a couple of pictures of the Lee Speed that I believe was a presentation gun to a W WHITEHEAD which is on a brass plate fitted to the butt. The gun is in good condition overall with very crisp rifling.

      AB, yes it is a very lovely gun. I have been looking for sometime for a lee speed and down here they are hard to find. I have only had it for a few days and I am sorry to say it will be a long time before I let go of it, or should I say when I am gone it will become the wife's problem

      It came from a very respectful collector who has had for sometime and I am lucky to have been in the right place at the right time and he sold it to me. I am very happy with it and would like to one day find out some more info on the possible name on the plate.

      Hi Bathurst72,
      Very nice indeed!! I like to see these private purchase, commercial production Lees. The fit and finish on them is a step above the military production, as is to be expected. They generally seem to be looked after a little better than their conscripted brothers as well.
      I have an LSA a little earlier than yours which has been shortened to a Range Rifle as was required under the rules of the day. I think I prefer yours, although mine does shoot well.
      Regards
      Les
