    So, yeah, had it a week and selling it. Parkerized in very nice shape I like it, but the sights on Enfield don't line up for me, so no big deal, get a cheek piece, or even some foam and tape, right, well sure, that would work, but these repro cheek pieces are kind of cool. http://www.e-sarcoinc.com/enfield4mkitsniperriflecheelpiece.aspx and you know, only $25.00. Triggers what it is, nothing wrong with it, but drop in triggers from Huber Concepts are very nice http://huberconcepts.com/product/lee-enfield-trigger/ Sure, but that's another $100. Hummmmm I know someone that wanted one, lets check with him . . . nope, he was thinking of an Enfield, like the Envoy. Yeah, for $350. :s0114: Too bad the wood came from Vietnam, kind of makes them hard to import. This is the only one I could find for sale, it's missing it's sights, and they STILL got $800 for it. Uh, hold on a second . . . no magazine? and what the heck with the trigger and the trigger guard screws. Would have loved to be there when the buyer figured out he paid $800 for a buba Frankingun :s0093:

    AH! Now this is more like it! http://www.gunauction.com/buy/12702362 An Enforcer, a real one, and it only sold for (drum roll please!) $4,014.00. :eek:

    But that looks cool, right? And the Ishapore is pretty close, wonder how much it would be to get it rebarreled?

    Nope! :s0057::s0057::s0057: Not going go down that road again, and if I keep it, I will.

    Haven't shot it, but I hear it will hold minute of pie plate at 100 yards off the hood of a Jeep all day long.


    $300 cash or my usual trade bait.

    I haven't heard on a 2aBA before. Is the rear sight graduated to 800 or 2,000?

    I've never heard of them either, I think it may just be the way the imported marked them. Here is the sight, looks to be 2,000

    That's a 2A then. 1964, 1965. Both should say on the right side of the receiver. Park' looks great. All matching including the mag? (What's that Yank' sling doing on there? :D )

    Slings just waiting on you to switch it out. ;) All the #'s I can find, including the mag, match.

    The 2As are rarer than the 2A1s. The Ishapores have a tendancy for the bolt to override the rounds feeding from the left side of the mag, but that is literally a five second tweak on the mag to fix. $300 is a very good price for a matching example in this condition.

    Meh, it's dark, but the lands look sharper to me and I think it looks way more pitted in the photo than it really is.

    Just busted out the flashlight, no cosmo, it's been shot (not by me :rolleyes:) and it's dirty and a little linty. Guess I should have cleaned it before I took the photo. :oops:

    Oh, yeah . . .guess that was a little vague.
    Clearly some of these are potently +/- cash.
    Looking for 'shooters grade' not collectors.

    parts for a 9mm AR (Don't need the upper)
    Savage 1907 32acp
    non polymer full size EAA Witness in 9mm
    Savage 340 30-30
    Might be tempted by a 7mm Mauser. Been years since I shot one and guns have all changed and don't fit me the way they did 30 years ago. ;)
    Something else maybe that isn't a Glock, 22lr or a shotgun. :s0093:

    I have one just like that but mine came painted black, so I stripped it down and finished it with GunKote matte black. The wood is beautiful and it shoots really well.
