I don't own an Ishapore yet but I love Enfields, they are some of my favorite guns to shoot. I'm sure you will enjoy your Ishy!
Perhaps, if I am very lucky, the feeble efforts of my lifetime will someday be noticed, and maybe, in some small way, they will be acknowledged as the greatest works of genius ever created by Man.

I liked my Ishapore. Look it over carefully and make sure its properly headspaced before you shoot it and AVOID INDIAN SURPLUS AMMO AT ALL COSTS!!!(There have been some rather dramatic problems with the indian ammo!) If its all good it will shoot better than most surplus rifles! Good guns.
