The Howell Automatic Rifle is an automatic conversion for the Lee–Enfield rifle. The weapon was reliable but unergonomic for the user as the force of the recoiling bolt interfered with handling. Similar conversions were the South African Rieder and Charlton of New Zealand origin which had full automatic capability.
