Does anyone have any experience with this particular variation of Enfield?
I have one enroute and can't wait to see what it is like and how it shoots.
:D

It looks nice. How much did ya pick it up for?
It wasn't cheap. 349 plus shipping. I am here in Canada and No4 rifles are to Canadians what the M1 Garand is to Americans, so they command a premium. This one is actually from a dealer who has a few left from the 2008 import. It is still in the grease from storage. The bore is rated as NRA very good.

Wow I love the wear in it! Beautiful rifle! Why are military surplus rifles in Canada cheaper than in the US? Because I've seen SVT40s for $300 or so and in te states they're like 700

Actually our import laws are waaaaaay easier than the US laws. I just sold my SVT-40 for 325 shipped (It was nice but didn't fit me well). We also have lots of non-issued sks here. I just bought one in the grease all matching for 240 shipped. Also we can get all the cheap Chinese Norincos you guys can't. :cool:

Dang moving to Canada sounds quite appealing right now! But don't y'all have a 5 round limit? Well $325 SVTs sounds amazing, so do the $250 SKSs....

So the guns are cheap but you have to ruin them... Thats not fair.. :(

I dont even see the point of a 5 rd SKS :(
Where do you even get a 5rd charging clip? :p

Looks like a nice one, all I can tell you is they were built to British Royal Ordnance Factory spec`s by the Pakistani-Ordnance-Factory, I have one & it seams to be a right nice rifle................

Beautiful rifle. I have a SMLE enfield myself.

Is that Pakistani chambered in 7.62x51? If it is, don't run commercial .308 win through it or you'll F up the head spacing.

Thanks guys! It is in it's original .303 Brit . I like this chambering because I live in the middle of nowhere and getting ammo is easy (there are literally millions of Enfields in Canada).

Well none of our firearms have any import marks. Also we don't have any foolish ffl stuff to deal with. We have a PAL card with a picture that you flash at the gun counter to prove who you are (nothing is recorded) and immediately walk out with as many firearms as we can carry/afford ;)

All right now. Don't be stingy! Ya'll need to share!
Amen to that!! I have an idea, now this may not be as lucrative as drugs, aliens, etc., but how about a smuggling operation where we sneak cherry C&R rifles across the border. Since Barry and Hilly and Eric they have dried up here, but looks like Canada is ripe for the picking.

As for the POF No. 4...the originator of the thread said the No. 4 was to Cannucks as the Garand is to Yanks...to any Yank who likes a good bolt rifle, the No. 4 is about as good as they get. I have used a No. 4 mk II to hunt whitetails here in Nebraska. Had never seen an animal actually tossed down until that 180 gr bullet whacked a nice buck.

More moose are killed here on our island with .303 Brit than all others combined. People don't realize there is only 10% difference in the .303 and .30-06 ;)

I read something once that said the U.S. 30-40 Krag was similar to the. 303 and laughed. It was a blatant copy of the. 303! I love the .303, and properly loaded I would be confident taking nearly anything in North America and Africa with it.
As can be derived from my screen-name, I tend to think cartridge development peaked with spitzer bullets and love these old war horses.
