A #5 Mk I Jungle Carbine


Went to my favorite gun shop at lunch "just to look around" and found two of them. Mine is the better conditioned of the two, and the less expensive for some reason. That's how I justified buying it, anyway. $199. Manufactured in '45. Looks like it's never been issued. Wood's a little banged-up, but the finish is about 99% and the bore is excellent. The bolt-head is a #1. No remanufacture stamps. Bolt and bolt-handle are in-the-white. Really nice shape.

This is my last Enfield.

I swear.

No, really.

Honest.

The Jungle Carbine is fun to shoot if you like recoil.

I've got an 11/44 rifle. Mine has a #3 bolthead. I'm pretty sure it was made with a #3 bolthead too.

GPC has new rubber buttpads.

Now you will have an excuse for doing a slow burn when you read about some "expert" cautioning a newbie about the Jungle Carbine's famous "wandering zero."
