    Hello, I am looking at purchasing an Enfield SMLE MK III* as I like the gun types and am hopping to use it to jumpstart my collet. However this Enfield that I am looking at the stock is different then the typical Enfield as it does not engulf the entire thing and I am wondering why? Is this a...

    Any Lee Enfield experts in the house. I have a No5 Mk1 Jungle Carbine. Im certain its a Khyber Pass rifle. But it looks to me like the barrel, stock and bolt are authentic. Have any of you ever shot one of these, right now its a wall hanger but I would like to find out if its shootable.

    Looking for your collective advice.... I recently aquired a sporterized Lee Enfield from a family member who had purchased it in the 1960's from a Sporting goods store. He told me that over the years he had refinished the stock - but it was in rough shape. Very dark, some big scratches, and...

    This is my latest, yet oldest rifle acquired recently. A .303 Martini-Henry carbine. I always wanted a Martini-Henry but it's very difficult to find the ammo. Ammo is expensive. Reloading requires some advanced skills . Even reloading is no cheap. So when I stumbled across this .303 Martini, I...

    I bought this from AIM and I believe it to be more of a collectors piece. I was going to return it but if anyone wants it I will give it to you for cost and eat the shipping. I am not putting it in classifieds, if you are a serious collector PM me for pictures...

  9. Milsurp Rifles
    Hey guys, my uncle from down South called me. He has an opportunity to buy one these with the cone shaped "flash hider". Anyone have an idea about value? I would think since its 7.62 as opposed to .303 British, it might be worth a few dollars more. What would be a fair price? I checked the...

    Hi everyone, I just got this rifle yesterday. It comes with a grenade launching cup, some stripper clips, 3 tennis balls, and over a hundred .303 blank rounds. The grenade launching cup is a very interesting accessory. Can't wait to try it out. I have some questions to ask. 1. I guess someone...

    Hello all. As I keep on searching for a British Lee-Enfield No1 MK III*, I've discovered that the MKIII s (without an asterisk) are easier to be found in the market. As information shows the differences bewteen the two are 1) the magazine cutoff, 2) long range volley sight, 3) rear sight windage...

    Does anyone know what type of paint used on these rifles metal during WW2, where can I get some of it or something like it and how was it applied, sprayed or dipped?
  13. Milsurp Rifles
    Have been looking for this particular model (No.1 MkIII*) for some weeks. I was able to spot one on gunbroker but I missed the auction end time. I'm looking for the British one but not the Austrilian/Indian ones. I notice that myoldrifles.com has several there. But they've just stopped shipping...
  14. Bolt Action Rifles
    Just looking for some owner opinions. I've recently seen a few vids for both the Mosin M38 carbine and the Lee Enfield (jungle) carbine and before I pick one to search for, I was hoping some of you could give me your pros/cons about each or [even better] both that you own or have shot. Thanks...

    Does anyone have a vice and Wrench for an Enfield No. 4? Apparently the one for the FAL will also work. I want to do a barrel swap. Country gunsmith said it would cost $300 but since I have a barrel already I would like to do it myself and learn. Anyone ever done it?

    I was wondering does anyone know I can get a decent Le Enfield on LI?
