De Lisle Carbine (8/11)

List item

The De Lisle Carbine was developed by the British. It was a short carbine based off of the Lee Enfield rifle, that most prominently features an integrated suppressor. The primary purpose behind the De Lisle Carbine was for use by commandos on secret missions. To this day, it is widely regarded as being one of the most quiet firearms ever made.

Only around 130 De Lisle carbines were made, so their use was extremely limited. In addition, even though the actions of the rifle were based off of the Lee Enfield carbines, the De Lisle was actually chambered for and fired the .45 ACP round, which would be much quieter to fire than the larger .303 rounds that the Lee Enfield was typically chambered for.
