Chopped down like a Jungle Carbine. Saw it on TNN today... SWEET ASSED RIFLE! Only caught the last bit. Anyone know anything about it? Who makes it? Thanks much!

Gibbs and Navy Arms have been selling fake Jungle Carbines for some time. You can still get REAL Jungle Carbines from Century and SOG. Dennis Jenkins

Found it thanks to some of the AK guys... Sweet IMHO! Possibly a very nice scout type rifle?! Great price! http://www.gibbsrifle.com/military.html http://www.shooterstore.com/acb/showprod.cfm?&DID=111&CATID=600&ObjectGroup_ID=1639

Actually I m looking for one of the new and improved versions. The one ReDone by Gibbs or something. If there are any dealers out there who want to help me out please drop me a not. I really would like a local one so I would not have to pay shipping and handling. Six

I dont like the jungle carbines in whatever caliber...though I would love to see a No.4 Enfield with one of those cone flash hiders that you see on the No5 carbines.

An 8 pound rifle is not my definition of a "carbine."

Gents, I've owned one of those Enfields that they advertise as newly-made for .308. BULLSHIT! They are re-chambered, and that's it. The receiver is sized for .303, so the .308 case is very loose on extraction. The case head of the .303 round is much larger than .308; this leaves you with a rifle that chambers and extracts OK, but then just drops the case onto the the remaining rounds in the magazine. This forces you to grab the case and get it out before you can chamber another round. A real POS, trust me. Wasn't accurate for shit, either.

Well, I've had one of the Gibbs #7 carbines in .308 for about a year now. Never a problem. Shoots to point of aim, smooth feeding and extraction. I'd highly recommend one of these.

Never a problem with my Enfild 2A. These are #1 actions made new in India for the 308.They did use parts like sights ect from there old #1's.England did rechamber there 1 and 4 for the 308 but ive never shot one. By the way I did make mine into a scout rifle. I ground the rear sight down and drilled and tapped the sight base.I used the flat bottomed weaver mount.I think it was for a Marlin 39.After a couple shot to make shure it was paralell to the bore I epoxied it and red loctite the screws.Cut the barrel back to 18" and used the original stock cut back.Tossed the upper handgaurd.Also welded a extension on the stock with a flat end.That way you can flip open the butt latch and take it down without tools.I would start with a full size 2A they are less than 90.00 dealer.You can do the whole thing for about 125 minus scope.
