The Lee-Speed rifle was a bolt action rifle based on James Paris Lee's rear-locking bolt system and detachable magazine. Early models were fitted with barrels using the radiused rifling developed by William Ellis Metford[1], while later models used the Enfield rifling as contemporary British rifles.

The weapon was a sporting variant of the Lee-Metford and Lee-Enfield rifles made for civilian shooters. However, it was frequently bought by Army officers who wanted a firearm made to a higher standard than the issued rifle.
