I think he's saying if he can put a Mk5 sight on his No3 that's been converted to a Jungle Carbine without looking for a Mk3 sight.

I have not heard of a Enfield No3....................

I didn't know what he meant by a No3 either

When you start w/ Enfields you Have MkIIINo1 and No4Mk1, makes it hard for a newby to keep it strait. The Brits could in no way make it harder. Give the kid a break.

Yes, the rear sight on a No4 will fit on a No5...............If the rear sight is on the receiver they will interchange.

yeah sorry to confuse.... just trying to make sure that it will take a no 5 rear sight i know i am probably saying it all wrong. this is my first enfield

synical 10-31-2012 01:24 AM

ok let me see if I can clear this up.... I have a No I mk III ishapore lee enfield .303 that has been converted to a No 5 jungle carbine by golden state arms. It is missing the rear sight does anyone know which one I can get to fit. I am thinking since it has been converted the No5 but I want to make sure. And If i can get the site does it usually come with the bolt or whatever you use to secure the sight? I am new to enfields so I have no clue... thanks for the help.

The No I Mk III`s rear sight was on the barrel, the No 4 & 5 the rear sight was on the receiver...............
