    I just picked up a very nice mk5 jungle carbine. I think it may be the first step of British Rifle Disease. A mutant form of BRD. I think I should buy a few before the price goes crazy.

    next comes the BBRD... British Black Rifle Disease...

    I think I want a No.4 as that is what I used as an army cadet for a few years.

    The Enfields definitely grow on you. I've got a 1916 Aussie Lithgow No1 MkIII, 1948 Faz No 4 Mk 2, a 1945 No 5. Mk. 1, and a 1929 No 1 Mk VI. Lots of history, and they're still pretty reasonably priced!

    Three Enfields here. Two No 5 Jungle Carbines, and one No 4 Mk 2. Really great rifles. One of, if not the, fastest bolt action rifles around.

    Good .303 ammo is rare and dear these day though. Fortunately I stocked up on the Greek a few years back so I'm ok. But newcomers to the Enfields face a grim road finding enough good (!) ammo to play at a decent price.

    I've got a few... one No. 4 Mk I shooter, one No. 4 Mk I collector, and one Jungle Carbine (a legit one, not a repro).

    They're fun...

    All I've got is a Mk. III from 1917...don't know too much about it other than that. Was a hand-me-down from a bit ago... 4th or 5th shot I ever took with it blew the bayonet lug off. Should I just epoxy it back on?

    I know what you mean about the ammo, MrNatural...all I can find that's non-corrosive are hunting rounds.

    Speaking of corrosive, stay away from any Pakistani surplus .303 ammo that you find. Filthy, poorly made, and highly corrosive.
