I found what looks to be a Enfield Jungle Carbine in 7.62. I'm thinking it is a 2A1 that was modified. My Question is other than a Gibbs No. 7, was there any Jungle Carbines made in 7.62? Is $175.00 a fair price?

Thanks.

Not that I am aware of, but someone else may know.Is $175.00 a fair price?Unless it's been beat to death, that is a great price. 2A1s go for about $200-225 or more in good shape.

Thanks.


Hope this helps

The no5 was never produced in .308....ever.

It's also very uncommon to see a .308 No4 converted to fake "Jungle Carbines"....as you note it's probably a No2 Ishapore action cut down. Easy way to tell is does it have a leaf sight or a peep sight on the receiver? Leaf sight over the barrel is an No1/2 action.....peep sight on the charger bridge is a No4. Gibbs rifles are usually No2A1's cut down to "tanker carbines".

Still a good price for a handy shooter, but it has zero historical value....except as a manufactured oddity.

Check out the bore, and if it's good, go ahead.  That's a good price and the rifle is a handy shooter.  I have one, and love it.  Of course, it has no historical value, but given it's handy size and "fun" value, it's worth it.  Also, you can get 5 round mags for hunting.

Great looking rifle. I'd pay more than $175 if the bore is good, for sure.
