Default British .303

Hey today I found a .303 enfield for 250 bucks it has all the crown stamps and england stamped in it and looks to be in good condition however it is missing the rear site out of the holder. Is this a good buy? or should I look for a different one? it also has 1940 stamped in it.

That's a commercial conversion of a No.5 Jungle carbine in what looks to be excellent condition. It was originally a No.4 and was converted in the U.S. by the Golden State Arms Corporation. At $250 I would jump on it, if you dont like it I'll give you what you got in it.

Look at some Prvi Partizan ammo, pretty good stuff. The surplus stuff all dried up, I'm down to my last 250 rounds of it.
