well remember with the boiling water... It puts the lotion on its skin or it gets the hose again!

Not really as the boiling water dissolved the acidic salts left from the primer's firing in the chamber and barrel. Normal cleaning procedures will not completely remove these salts properly and will rust the barrel if left in there.

If worried about scalding yourself all's that you have to do is get a small funnel and something like a rubber hose that fits in the barrel and pour the water into the funnel,regards

I was watching Yukon men last night and a guy killed a black bear with a .303. he shot it in the side probably 150 yards out and blew a massive hole in the other side of the bear.

Your rifle looks like a MKIII converted to look like a Jungle Carbine. Hard to tell from your photos but I can't see a rear sight and the safety is the wrong type. A lot of unscrupulous dealers will try to pass these conversions off as the real thing so I hope you didn't get burnt.

yeah I know its not the real deal as far as a No5 its been converted by golden state arms. It is a No1 MkIII ishapore that has been converted. but I only paid 250 for it so I am still good. its still a Lee Enfield lol I know its not a collector
