Love these rifles so much, I decided to start a picture thread, here's mine.
Here's mine! (don't make fun of my red feet!)
I meant to ask but never did, is that a 1943 or a 1947? It's kind of hard to make out.
I had to go look haha but it's 1943
Does this count? 1917 Eddystone Enfield.
And no, I'm not the one who did that to the stock, or add the scope. Or the new barrel. Or the Timney trigger.
Sure does, its cool.
Still an Enfield
I don't have one, But I've kind of always wanted one ever since I saw Paul Hogan carrying one in one of the Crocodile Dundee movies.
Technically the pattern 14 & 17 are not Enfields..............
Technically not the same thing, but it shares the name, so I'll let it slide.
This one technically isn't either but it's still cool.
I love break-top revolvers.
They do not share the same name...............
Technically they are the, (Rifle, .303 Pattern 1914) and the (United States Rifle, cal .30, Model of 1917) but they were saddled with the label American Enfield, so I guess I will let it slide...............
Here is a few of mine........
Jealousy at its finest right here
My mistake, how did they get the Enfield label?
The British .303, the pattern 14 was built for them & was chambered in the Enfield`s round............
Ya see, what had done happened was...
We were helping the british out, building some rifles for them. Then, when we got involved in WWI, ordnance found it would be pretty simple to take the same action, make a few changes, chamber it in the classic .30, and issue it to our own troops.
Sweet, I need to find a 1917 30-06 then.
Since my US Model of 1917 Eddystone counts...
my 1906 Enfield when i got it (top) & wearing No. 4 furniture (bottom). personally i like it more in the bottom photo
Here is my 1943 No 4 and the deer I harvested with it. I like to think that my Enfield was used to kill Nazis in 1943 and PA deer in 2009.
Real men shoot with iron sights!
