Enfield Jungle Carbine

Here is a fun rifle! The Enfield MkV "Jungle" carbine, in .303 British. It came into service around 1943 to see use in Borneo and jungle fighting - it's reduced size and weight making it more totable. The downside is that recoil is definitely more obvious! (Note recoil pad)

The action is sweet, as all Enfields and makes for very fast cycling from the std 10 round magazine. Aquisition of quite large quantities of very old milsurp ammunition make this not over expensive to shoot, altho being corrosive primed there is a need to clean up well after. Sights are excellent - either with leaf down a peep which is near spot on for 100 yards or - flip up leaf and dial in range on that peep ring.
