The Turner SMLE was a prototype semi-automatic conversion of the bolt-action Short-Magazine Lee-Enfield. Designed by American gunsmith Russel Turner, it was intended for use by Canada. A single unit was manufactured in 1941 for testing as a potentially cheaper alternative to the M1 Garand, which it was trialled against. Although Turner's conversion performed comparatively well it was rejected for formal adoption by the Canadian Army due to its high mechanical complexity. The Turner uses a side-tilting bolt system similar to the ZH-29.

"The Turner SMLE had many qualities, but simplicity was not one of them. It it [sic] did well in extremely cold conditions and the Canadian Army tested it, but they didn't adopt it."

— In-game description

The Turner SMLE is a weapon featured in Battlefield V. It first appeared in the Closed Beta available for play at Gamescom.


Player character Deme Cisse obtains the Turner SMLE from Idrissa in the finale of the singleplayer war story Tirailleur.


The Turner can be considered the British counterpart to the German Gewehr 43, due to their similar damage and handling characteristics, as well as identical magazine and reserve ammunition capacity, although the Turner has a slightly higher rate of fire and fires lower velocity rounds. It is a three-shot kill at most ranges. Although initially reloaded with 5-round clips, the rifle can be upgraded with both detachable and extended 20 round magazines at the same time.
