    Congratulations, this one's on my grail list too.

    Some "nay-sayers" complain this model has a "wandering zero", but in 99% of these cases it turns out to be the sights and not the rifles design.

    ENJOY!!

    and this is exactly the reason I don't go to pawn shops that often or at least unaccompanied by the spousal unit. Divorces are DAMNED expensive, Death costs a whole lot more.

    A real jungle carbine... sweet. Congratulations!


    One minor, nitpicky correction; BSA is Birmingham Small Arms, not British Small Arms. And yes, it's the same company that made the motorcycles.

    when talking about historic arms, details mean everything and makes the JC that much more special.

    I have a thing for Enfields so the Mk5 is on my list too. That being said, I have my doubts I'll ever find one. It's hard enough to find a carbine version of most any pre-Korea milsurp but trying to find one with a good bore really slims the odds. Back in the late '70s, my brother picked up a nice one. He'd been looking for several years and checked out quite a few before he finally found a good one. Everything's pretty well picked-over now, most all the good rifles have been scarfed-up and those that got 'em either won't give 'em up or want big bucks for 'em. From what I've seen, the sporterized guns are likely to have the best barrels, on average. Guns that are set up and specifically used for hunting seem to get less rounds run through 'em than the fun guns. Unfortunately, I like 'em to be original. ...nice find!

    You are correct! I have no idea why I said British instead of Birmingham, I do know the difference.

    Thank you for the correction…
