    image.jpg I just got an Enfield "Jungle Carbine" in .303 British from a neighbor. It looks to be in good shape, other than missing the butt plate and a light engraving of a DL or SS number. From what I've found, this is a real JC and not a clone. Any idea what it's worth, as is?

    Thanks! Don't know a thing about it, but detachable mag was cool. I paid $190 for it after some tough negotiations. I figured if nothing else it would be cool to modify.

    You just might have a real one there. If so--don't mess with it. It's got some value.

    You got a smoking deal on that don't modify anything on it, they are quite collectible now.

    Pretty sure it's somebody's DL#. It is on the right side, one the metal that goes vertical (kinda) between the two pieces of wood. The bolt handle covers them mostly when it's down.

    youll need to pull the stock to check, real ones will have lightening cuts on the reciver...check the enfield section of gunboards for help, those guys are awewome.

    I haven't pulled the stock, but it has all the other machine marks that are visible while the stock is on.

    Nice gun. Always wanted one myself.
    Even if it's not a "real" #5, I'd not modify it.
    These had a weird rubber recoil pad, not a metal butt plate.

    I have an Ishapore Enfield in JC config in 762x51

    Of course, it isn't as good as a British Enfield, it is an older model/series and it isn't an authentic JC.

    However, I got it for $220 at a gun show and it had the read sight base modified to take a Scout Scope mount and had a cheap scope on it. Haven't shot it yet, but I will probably get a synthetic stock and get one of those adapters to take a folding AR or AK type buttstock. Then it will be a decent truck gun.
