The gun on the right is a standard, not jungle, British SMLE that has had the stock sporterized. The other is definately a Swiss Rubin but instead of an 1889 I believe it is a model 1911.

Right - British Enfield No.4 MK1. The front forearm looks sporterized.
Left - Swiss Schmidt-Rubin K11. The stock looks to be refinished.
