I will go along with the copy idea. The markings are just wrong. The crown is the wrong shape, the E.R. letters are wrong, "Enfield" appears to be hand stamped, the LE is wrong. Some more pictures might be interesting, but I doubt very much they would indicate other than that the rifle is a fake, though where and by whom made, I don't know. The AMI means nothing to me.

Looking at the receiver ring, the thought occurs that it might be a non-firing replica made for sale in places where gun ownership is restricted. I would definitely NOT fire or attempt to fire that rifle without having it inspected carefully by a competent gunsmith.
