  • Enfield No.5 MK1 ROF .303 Rifle ????

    I've got an Enfield No.5 Mk1 jungle carbine, all matching #'s and need to locate the rear sight for the gun. The gun is in good condition and has an excellent bore, I'm thinking of using it for hunting and need some ideas. Would you put a scope mount on or keep looking for the original factory site?(If I can find one)

      B-Square makes a bolt-on scope mount. The original sights are the same as on the No.4 MK1 303 SMLE rifle. 3 different types of rear sights were used on that rifle to cut mfg. costs, the last was a flip sight like the one used on the original M-16. The early ladder style sight had a battle zero and could be raised and set for different ranges. Battle sights are zeroed at around 350 yards so they shoot quite high at 100 yards. A scope would be your best bet, the mount is not expensive and you may find one used.

          Enfield Jungle Carbines are very collectible. Don't mess with putting a scope on it just find a collector that wants it and trade it for a rifle with scope in .308 or some other caliber you like. You will be much better off with a easier to obtain caliber. Decent British .303 ammo is tough to find & expensive.The last time I bought a complete rear sight it was $20. The crude L types you may find for $10- $15.

              Samuel Fuller had a term fer mugs that never got a clue; Fellas that went through boot camp and hit the beach thinkin that the Nazies were not bad guys with guns looking to kill em. He called em 'statistics'. Meaning : Letters Home, Body Bags, Dog Tags.
              A man with a rifle and uses it is a Fighter.
              A man the muses about it's collector's value is a Letter Home.
              Get with the programe, there aint no collectors left.

                Here is an OPen Letter fer all you shotgun/clay pidgeon shooters. You folks liven near Washington DC behind the high walls of your VIG county estates. It aint the NRA comming after your shotguns. It aint the NRA printed on the backs of them SWAT men coming across your manicrured lawns. Those black hooded fellons are the same boyos that were at Ruby Ridge and MT Carmel: and now you will give-up your arms with glee, then turn towards the cameras and swear you fought for American's rights, safe in the bosom of a Marxist State, surrounded by bodyguards when only a century before common men and women could walk-up to the whitehouse and walk through it,,,The only such capitol on earth,, in history,,but that is gone,unless reclaimed NOW.

                  No collectors left? You must be hanging around in the wrong places.
                  There are many more collectors around than "fighters",whatever that is. I've been with the program for many decades !
