Krag is smooth, I agree. The nomenclature that you identified is correct, the rifle is a re-chambered Enfield with a rear peep. The best of both worlds in IMHO. The Krag was my first military rifle. It was my grandfathers, purchased from DCM (CMP) in the early 20th Century. It is a chore to find ammo for. I have been buying a stock for years and put maybe 40 rounds through it a year.

Hi Dave , just a quick question , I found a older post made by you , don't ask me how ,I can't remember, in regards to you purchasing a Hastings barrel for a Browning A5 , with the ability to put choke tubes of different I.D's for different shooting scenario's, just wondering where on god's green earth you were able to find the that Barrel, as NO ONE seems to have any , anywhere.... and being the new owner of a very lightly used A5 light,(2 3/4"shell) I would love any info on where I could locate one new or used for sale.. any info would be greatly appreciated... Thanks! I have also been informed I cannot bring one in from the U.S. to Ontario ... which is BS!!

Paul.

That Jungle Carbine here in Australia would fetch you big $$$$'s and it probably wouldn't last 5 minutes on a gun dealer sight.

These JC's are 1 of the best pig hunting rifles ever with the 10 shot mag and I'd be the same as you as in wanting to fire it a very nice rifle and find.

There are so many neat Enfields and since they are the longest serving bolt action rifles there is huge collector interest. In the 90s a large number of so called Irish Contract No4 MKIIs were imported in absolutely new condition. I bought 3 of them and wished I had bought more.

Dude ive had so many offers allready , anyone knows a real no 5 drools at the sight of it , and being from miami originally agree would make a great pig gun, but like i said i want to fire it very badly but the rifle has never been fired,afraid it will decrease the value i do ,but ill prolly never sell it was offered 1000$ by another collecter i know turned it down.Just love the matched set too much to part with her and looked for a no5 since i was a kid.I saw it on the table at estate sale i acted dumb and waited for bidding to start walked out with her for 350 ,i bout fell out my chair lol.

I thought the "Jungle carbines" had a bad problem with "wandering zero"? Isnt that why they discontunued it in 1947, and continued the production of the longer SMLE's
