Most likely a Afghan border made copy of an Enfield. The E in Enfield is mistamped.
It may have some original Enfield parts, but like as not the whole thing was handmade in a cavern workshop in Dara.
Best left as a wall hanger, though it might handle light loads.

There are Turkish modified captured WW1 SMLE rifles with provision for a Mauser bayonet, usually rebarreled for the 8mm cartridge as used by the 1888 Commision rifle. Those are not safe to fire with more powerful 7.92x57 Mauser cartridges, though some have gotten away with it in the past.
