If you look at the top picture on page 219 of Ian Skennerton's book, The Lee Enfield Story, you will see a photograph of a virtually identical rifle, captioned: "This early production No. 4 rifle is tagged 'EXPERIMENTAL (woodwork cut-away)' and appears to have been a prototype lightened rifle."

It appears to have been a well documented modification and also appears to be legitimate as it is "tagged" by (I assume) the Enfield Pattern Room.
