No.5 Mk1 (ROF) (F) Jungle Carbine 303 British 1946

The most romantic, if you will, of the “Enfield” series of rifles (in service with the British starting in 1895) is the No.5 Mk1 “Jungle Carbine”. Plagued by problems, it was the shortest lived of the series but none-the-less; it has always been considered the most exotic of the Enfields. Even its unofficial name “Jungle Carbine” evokes thoughts of mysterious tropical lands. This example was manufactured at the Royal Ordnance Factory, Fazakerley in Liverpool in November of 1946. It bears “ENGLAND” on the left of the butt socket and the nitro proof details on the barrel (required by British export law) but it has no import marks indicating that it arrived on American soil sometime before 1968. The serial numbers on the receiver, bolt and forend all match (not force matched) while the magazine is not matching. Excluding the magazine; the metal retains a strong 98% finish while the bore is excellent, bright and shiny with strong, sharp rifling and not a hint of pitting (we used a Hawkeye bore scope) and the stocks are completely sound. They have been lightly sanded and given a coat of varnish-like finish over some old dings here and there and about 92% of it remains. The non-matching magazine is about 75% gray patina and a little battered but functions perfectly. A very nice Jungle Carbine for your pleasure.
