Russian M44 1944
Yugo 24/47
Enfield No4MK1
The guy through the No4 in on the trade. Not alot of marks on it R5 on the barrel and BNP on the barrel nut. Can this gun be saved or is it a sportster for good? I would like to find a stock for it.

Thanks

The Enfield (jungle carbine) i got from my grandfather was sporterized too. Go shoot it. I might even do one of the .45 acp conversions on mine, barrel is pitted but it still groups good in the "brush hunting" ranges..... I put an ATI monte carlo stock on mine, the original stocks are prone to cracking.

Damn, the machine marks on the left side of your receiver are nasty. BTW, the BNP means "Birmingham Nitro Proofed" and if it has the crown above the letters, it was likely made post war-1954-ish.

It looks like they reworked the end of the barrel. Either they cut off the end or they turned down the bayo mount. You might as well just shoot it as is unless you plan to replace the barrel.

On mine they cut off the front sight ears and the bayo lug, leaving the cone-shaped flash hider and front sight. Looks like the bbl was cut and a different sight base was added on yours. About 6 diff companies did these sporter conversions in the late 50's early 60's.

Enfield looks familiar.



My opinion is keep it a sporter there are alot of cool things you can do with it.

Was the 91/30 included, as well? If so, what year/arsenal (yes, I'm a Mosin whore!)

GNRNR,

Do tell about the sporters with the AK mags. 7.62x39 conversions, I would assume? How hard is it to do one like that? There's a ton of sporters around and with all the x39 ammo around, vs. .303, that would be a fun rifle to have. The Enfield is one of my favorites.

No, the 91/30 is from AIM'S date 1935.

The Yugo has a great trigger can't wait to shoot all three.

Thanks For the help guys.

Yep, barrel on the No. 4 has been chopped. It's a sporter, now and forever.

Go to Numerich and buy their Jungle Carbine kit.

Its $140 and has everything you need to convert the Enfield into a JC clone.
