    This conversion was briefly offered by Special Interest Arms, before being discontinued in 2012. It allows a Lee Enfield rifle to accept a single-stack WASR magazine, and fire the 7.62x39 cartridge, which is much cheaper, easier to find, and easier on the shoulder than .303 British. Only a handful of rifles were ever converted, and this is the only Mk.III model that I have seen. The base gun was an Indian Ishapore No.1 Mk.III Enfield that was in somewhat rough shape, so nothing of historical value was lost! The barrel is threaded for a suppressor or flash hider.

    A few things are left to be done before it is ready to fire.
    -Original barrel needs to be removed
    -New barrel needs an extractor grove cut
    -New barrel attached and headspaced
    -Minor shaping done to the magazine well to allow the magazine to feed correctly
    -The bolt could use a stripping and cleaning, as it is sticky with old grease.

    These aren't terribly difficult operations, but do require a few tools and a bit of know-how.

    Asking $400, but will entertain reasonable offers. Mostly I want to make room in my safe. IMG_4407.JPG Jump on it, this is likely the only one you will ever see!

    That is a very cool rifle. I wish you were closer.

    I know this is an old ad but is this still available?
